Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today asked officials to complete renovation of the existing bus stand at Barmunda in the state capital and turn it to an inter-state bus terminal (ISBT) by April, 2019. A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting chaired by Patnaik where the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) presented the concept design for the bus terminal, officials said. The terminal will be developed on a 15 acre land at a cost of over Rs 180 crore and have a 4-acre patch reserved for commercial development in future. More than 1,000 buses are now using the bus stand at Barmunda, well connected with the nearby NH-16.
