TNI Bureau: There is a huge rush to get Eco-Friendly Rakhis which are being sold near the ORMAS (Odisha Rural Development and Marketing Society). The Rakhis are prepared by the Women Self Help Groups (SHGs) across the State.
The Rakhis are made of Sabai grass, seeds, food grains, and rice. Major districts that contributed to prepare these eco-friendly Rakhis include Mayurbhanj and Balasore.
