The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Wednesday gave its approval for the proposal of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research to transfer 0.5 acre of land belonging to the Central Rice Research Institute (CRRI), Cuttack to the Police Department in Odisha on lease basis for a period of 33 years for the establishment of a police station.
A police outpost has been functioning inside the campus of the CRRI, Cuttack since 1982.
The Odisha Government has notified upgradation of this police outpost to that of a police station. The proposed land, after the transfer, will be used for construction, establishment and operation of the police station.
Establishment of this station at Cuttack, adjacent to the CRRI, would strengthen the security of the Institute and its employees; and would also be beneficial to the people living in the area.
