Government enacted the “Bihar and Orissa Places of Pilgrimage Act of 1920” for better management for lodging, sanitation, transportation, health and other facilities related to the pilgrims. Several provisions for the improvement of the pilgrimage and the accommodation of the pilgrims were made. Among the other things, the pilgrims were to be accommodated only in licensed houses, duly inspected, assessed, and authorized by the medical and executive officers.
