Building on shared synergies that Odisha’s craftsmen have held as well as the domain expertise that its ‘Dalmia DSP – DHALAI EXPERT’ offers to the Eastern region, the company paid tribute to four noted artisans community, involved in building the chariots, that helped build the chariots with DSP Expert Ratha Shilpakar Samaan. This is a unique initiative conceptualized by the organization and initiated for the very first time in Odisha.

Bijay Kumar Mohapatra, Nrusingha Mohapatra, Krushna Chandra Moharana and Purna Chandra Mohapatra were felicitated at a special event in front of the chariots, crafted by the artisans at Puri. They were presented with a plaque, a shawl and a cash award of Rs.10,000 as a sign of respect towards the artisans’ community that designs and constructs the chariots. DBL also felicitated another 20 contractors at the event who are experts in the field of home construction and unveiled a chariot before their channel partners, influencers and customers.
