If one is interested in Odisha’s local news related to villages, panchayats, blocks, municipalities, slums, streets, wards, corporations on topics ranging from politics, business, entertainment, sports, science, technology and community events then Odisha Local is the one-stop real-time destination.
A hyperlocal mobile app that serves location-based news in Odia and English has expanded its coverage to panchayats, a tech team member familiar with the development said on Thursday.
Odisha Local was serving hyperlocal news district wise. Now people can post from their panchayat, he said.
A large network of hyper-local journalists and community reporters from the district to block to gram panchayat to city level work round the clock to keep readers updated on happenings in and around their locations.
News stories are just two lines, factual and precise with relevant pictures. One can access news by setting panchayat, block, district, state as your preferred location.
The difference between other platforms and Odisha Local is that the posts are verified and edited by professionals.
