The first mobile crematorium in Karnataka has been launched at Mudoor in Kundapur of Udupi district. The Mudoor primary agricultural cooperative society took the decision to address the cremation issues of mortal remains of people belonging to rural areas after seeing the plight of the villagers.

There are around 600 houses in Mudoor village and if anyone dies, the mortal remains need to be taken to Kundapur crematorium ground which is 40 km away. Witnessing this, the society purchased the mobile crematorium costing Rs 5.8 lakh from a Kerala firm.

The mortal remains will get reduced to ashes within two hours using LPG cylinder weighing 10 kg. The vehicle will be sent to the site on request. The society has decided not to charge any fee for this service. All traditional rituals that need to be done can be carried out by keeping the mortal remains inside the crematorium.

Smoke or foul smell will not emerge in the cremation process. The pressurized air from high pressure LPG cylinder helps to burn the body. The mobile crematorium which is six feet in length and made of steel can be transported in a truck to anyone’s doorstep.
