However, the initial conferences were held at different dates due to non availability of suitable place or organizers. It was customary before to have an one day meet which continued till 1991.

It was enacted again at Berhampur in 1992 and with minor variation it is continuing till date. The conferences are organized at different parts of Orissa to give scope to maximum number of delegates from in and around the area to participate.
