There will be multilingual interpretation for the convenience of viewers from Odisha and outside Odisha. The museum will be developed in consultation with all concerned persons related to Madhu Babu’s biography and heritage sites

The 5T Secretary directed the authorities to prepare a plan with very high standards of work. A welcome arch will also be put up at the entrance of the village which will be built with Khandalite stone. A parking place will also be developed near Madhubabu’s Karmabhoomi.
