Bhubaneswar: The state government will develop ‘Ama Bus Stands’ in all blocks of Odisha in six years.

The government will spend Rs 6,164.80 crore from 2023-24 fiscal to 2028-29 fiscal for developing 318 bus stands across the state under the scheme. The amount also includes allocations for operational and maintenance expenditures of the project.

The state Cabinet headed by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today approved a proposal in this regard.

The state government has proposed to develop 318 bus stands in all 30 districts of Odisha under the Ama Bus Stand scheme in three phases.

The government has already developed 55 bus stands in the state in the first phase. It would develop 133 bus stands in the second phase and 130 in the third phase, said an official.

“Setting up of Ama Bus Stands in all blocks, major sub-divisions and towns in Odisha is a transformative move that can boost the state’s connectivity, inclusive growth, social cohesiveness, economic development and environmental sustainability,” he added.
