Twists are defects in the lattice which can be utilized to perform computations on encoded data. Twists have been studied in various classes of topological codes like qubit and qudit surface codes, qubit color codes and qubit subsystem color codes. They are known to exhibit projective non-Abelian statistics which is exploited to perform encoded gates. In this paper, we initiate the study of twists in qudit color codes over odd prime alphabet. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first

We also present a mapping between generalized Pauli operators and strings in the lattice. Making use of the construction, we give protocols to implement generalized Clifford gates using charge-color permuting twists.
