One of the major activities of KFICC is dissemination of Krishanmurti’s teaching in the state of Odisha. A brief description of the activities follows.

1. Book Fairs are being attended in every district headquarters and sub-divisional quarters. Every year, around 25 to 30 book fairs are attended by the Centre where it reaches the public at large with K’s Odia and English books and his audio video tapes . In this way KFICC has almost covered the entire State of Odisha, and so far, it has been a grand success.

2. The Cuttack Centre has undertaken in subsidizing and economizing the prices of the books to make them affordable to most readers.

3. Out of the 60 Odia titles of K translated books, around 10 titles have been subsidized and priced between Rs. 10/- to Rs. 20/- for reaching out to students and  readers of interior Odisha.

4. The booklets are priced between @ Rs. 5 to Rs. 10.

5. In addition to this, the readers get 20% discount on the normal priced books.

6. The Centre visits schools and colleges in remote areas where subsidized & normal books & booklets of K are exhibited.

7. Cuttack Centre holds audio/video shows of K’s talks and discussions regularly and has been doing interactive sessions (i.e. Workshops) of Krishnamurti talks periodically.

8. The  Centre supplies Odia translated books of K in rural schools and public libraries all over Odisha free of cost. As a result, now all the district headquarters libraries of Odisha have a set of translated Krishnamurti books.
