BHUBANESWAR: Lord Jagannath’s Mahaprasad will undergo quality check before being sold to devotees as the Puri shrine administration has decided to use the services of a food inspector for the task, a first of its kind initiative in the country.

“I have written to the health department to depute a food inspector in the temple for daily quality check of the Mahaprasad. We have been receiving complaints from many devotees about substandard Mahaprasad sold by some servitors on the shrine premises. The food inspector will also check the quality of tanka torani (water mixed to cooked rice) sold to devotees,” chief administrator of Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) Suresh Mohapatra, a senior IAS officer, told  on Monday.
