Bhubaneswar: As the culling operation is completed in the State Capital, the traders are waiting for the permission of the administration to resume poultry vending in the 3-km radius of the epicentre.

It is noteworthy to mention that the sale and processing of chicken and other poultry products had come to a grinding halt in 29 wards in the State capital after the detection of avian influenza at the Central Poultry Development Organisation (CPDO).

To ensure that the operation was carried out successfully and that now there is no danger, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has asked the Collector of Khurda to submit a sanitisation certificate after accessing the measures taken by the Health Department.

After the report is submitted it will be presented before the Centre, seeking clearnce for re-starting of the business, sources said.
