Puri: In a bid to check the pictures of Shri Jagannath Temple premises going viral on social media platforms, the Shri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) has decided to impose complete ban on the entry of smartphones inside the temple premises from January 1, 2018.

According to reports, smartphones will be banned completely to avoid pictures of the Shri Mandir going viral. The rule implies to everyone including the servitors, politicians, ministers and bureaucrats. However, persons who are entitled to carry a mobile phone inside the temple can carry a phone without camera or internet facilities.

Meanwhile, the SJTA, which has planned to introduce Closed User Groups (CUG) system for the servitors, has also launched counters for selling mobile phones having a logo of SJTA and RFID tag which do not have camera or internet access.
