Earlier, the administration had imposed restrictions on cremation of dead bodies coming from other districts in view of rise in daily Covid positive cases in the State. Bodies of people belonging to Puri district, who died other than Covid reasons, were being allowed cremation at the sacred ground.
An official said the restrictions were lifted in view of daily Covid cases declining now.
In a related development, Chhatisha Nijog meeting is scheduled to be held today. SJTA Chief Administrator will preside over the meeting through videoconferencing.
Among others, Puri district Collector, SP, SJTA officials and servitor representatives will attend the meeting. The meeting is likely to take a decision on reopening of the Shree Jagannath Temple, which has remained closed since January 10 in view of Covid19 situation.
