Puri: The Ministry of Civil Aviation has rejected the application of Odisha government to declare the airspace over Puri Bada Danda as no flying zone for the safety and security of the Sri Jagannath temple.
It was informed by Puri SP Sarthak Sarangi. He said that the Ministry rejected the State plea citing that Bada Danda is the international flying route. Moreover, all the flights are flying over a height of 35,000 ft. So, there is no sign of any danger.
The ministry has assured to make arrangement for signal if the flights come down to 10,000 ft, Sarangi added.
