Odisha Tourism Department has decided to set up way side amenities (Jajabar) cottages on main highways across the State linking tourist places. Tourism Secretary Dr Arvind Padhee has asked all the 30 district Collectors to submit a report with the department after identifying land for the purpose within seven days. The Collectors have been asked only to identify Government lands instead of lands for the purpose. The management of these Jajabar centres will be handed over to private companies. Tourists can take rest at these centres where all facilities like, toilet, rest rooms and food will be available for them at very reasonable price. The main aim of setting up the cottages is to provide a better convenience to tourists particularly to women tourists, said a official in the Tourism department.
