Utility Services in Koraput

Koraput enjoys the privilege of being the headquarter of Koraput district and therefore enjoys pretty reliable infrastructure in many critical utility services. But this pretty reliable infrastructure looks quite backward and even outdated, when compared with infrastructure existing in other prominent cities like Cuttack and Bhubaneswar. This said, there is still hope for much needed improvement. This hope hails from slow but sure economic growth this city and many of its adjoining towns have been witnessing for many decades now. All the needed information on these hopeful improvements and more importantly on all the important public utility services has been provided below.

Electricity Supply in Koraput

The decade old load shedding problem continues till this day in Koraput city. This problem actually plagues entire Odisha state and not just Koraput city alone. The electricity shortage obviously has a huge bearing on local economy as well as on efficiency of other critical utility services. Despite casting huge adverse impact on city’s growth and its day-to-day life, this decade old problem is not expected to see any major solution in near future. As for which company is responsible for distributing power to this city, then that company happens to be Southern Electricity Supply Company Of Odisha Limited – SOUTHCO. SOUTHCO LTD is owned by Odisha State Government and is responsible for distribution of power to entire southern Odisha – including Koraput District.

Healthcare Services in Koraput

Koraput is home to few hospitals that are par with multi-specialty and super specialty hospitals that usually operate in urban cosmopolitan cities. This obviously means that Koraput citizens have to no longer flock to Cuttack, Bhubaneswar and other developed cities for complicated surgeries and operations. Other positive thing is that Koraput city has no dearth of chemist shops and doctors. The decent presence of these two basic healthcare facilities is at least providing some solace to local patients.

Transportation in Koraput

As is the case with most cities of India today, even Koraput city is heavily relied upon auto rickshaws for local transportation. Their numbers have also gone up during last few years, which helped them to literally monopolize local transportation services. Although Koraput city does offer another alternative in rickshaw cycle pullers, but their fast dwindling numbers signifies that they are most likely to become completely obsolete in coming years. Koraput Railway Station connects entire Koraput District to rest of Odisha state. It is directly connected to Bhubaneswar,Cuttack, Sambalpur, Rourkela and few other prominent cities of Odisha. Koraput Railway Station was inaugurated in 1998 and since then it has become an important lifeline for commuters of Koraput District.  Read More...................

Postal Services in Koraput

Government owned India Post still rules the roost in Koraput city and all its adjoining towns. This, however, doesn’t anywhere imply that private courier services enjoy absolutely no or zero popularity here. Their popularity is in fact growing at pretty substantial rate and in coming years hopefully will make more deep inroads in Koraput’s growing postal and courier market. This obviously will be good news for all Koraput citizens, who would love to send and receive courier/posts at lightning speed. For More Click Here

Safety and Security in Koraput

Police stations have obviously been stationed at strategic locations of Koraput city and many of its important adjoining towns. Challenges faced by these police stations are really immense, as Koraput District is affected by serious naxal problem. Naxal problem has been plaguing this district since 2001. Although till today Naxal attacks have taken place only in interiors of Koraput District, but law enforcement agencies in Koraput city still cannot afford to take Naxal attacks for granted. If you keep aside looming naxal threat, then Koraput city doesn’t face any major law and order problem. In fact Koraput city has always enjoyed and still continues to enjoy pretty stable law and order.

Banking Service in Koraput

Koraput city may not be an economic powerhouse or even an emerging city, but it does boost a very robust banking service. In fact banking service has been one of the few utility services that has witnessed continuous improvement. All these obviously imply that today Koraput city is served by all the prominent banks from Indian banking sector. State Bank of India, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank and few other prominent banks are today operating their branches in and around Koraput city. Presence of all these prominent banks has obviously also brought along with it array of modern banking services like instants loans, flexible saving accounts etc.

Fuel Stations in Koraput

It would be very obvious to say that in today’s time petrol and LPG gas is a critical lifeline for all cities across the world. Well, this obviously is equally true for small city like Koraput, where population and commercial vehicles during last one decade has grown in leaps and bounce. But despite the visible spurt in population and vehicles, Koraput city has never ever faced petrol and LPG gas shortage. And in all likelihood it won’t face even in future. All this obviously implies that there is decent number of petrol pumps and LPG gas agencies in the city. For More Click Here

Telecom Services in Koraput

Today Koraput city is completely mobile and internet empowered city. If we’ve to put this in more simple words, then all we’ve to say is that today Koraput citizens can make or receive call from any part of the world. This was something next to impossible some one decade back. But this seemingly impossible thing become possible after towers of many leading mobile companies began to spurt up in different parts of Koraput city. Thanks to these towers today Koraput city is fully integrated with rest of the world via mobile services. As for services of which of mobile companies are available, then services of Airtel, Idea, BSNL, Aircel and Vodafone are available throughout the city. As for internet is concerned, then in coming years Koraput is expected to make great strides in 3G and 2G internet services as well.

Koraput, over all, draws a very mixed picture. While certain utility services are clearly struggling and are pretty much in critical condition, others are working at pretty optimum level. The ones which are not working at optimum level obviously needs urgent attention by local and state authorities. Amongst them healthcare services apparently needs most attention.
