Odisha is a trendsetter in the country in achieving universal coverage of tap-water connections.""Our food security mission has secured 4th place among large states in the third State Food Safety Index for 2020-21."About various incentives and aid provided to the needy people during the Covid-19 pandemic, Patnaik said cash incentive of Rs 2,000 (in two tranches) to each of the beneficiary families has also been provided by incurring an expenditure of Rs 960 crore.The government has distributed financial assistance of Rs 3,000 under Biju Pucca Ghar Yojana to each beneficiary for repair, renovation of their pucca houses sanctioned since 2014.
