 Entry of smartphones will be completely banned in Sri Jagannath Temple, Puri from January 1, 2018. The decree applies not only to the servitors but also on politicians, ministers and bureaucrats. The SJTA has also launched counters for selling mobile phones having a logo of SJTA to servitors which do not have camera or internet facilities. “The persons who are entitled to carry a mobile phone inside the temple should carry a phone without camera or internet facilities. We have given a tentative date for the execution of this order but that may vary depending on the situation,” informed Pradeep Das, Srimandir Administrator (Ritual). Notably, SJTA has planned to introduce Closed User Groups (CUG) system for the servitors.
