With the final verdict in Ayodhya case on 9 November 2019, the Supreme Court had ordered the government to form a trust for the construction of Ram Mandir within three months from the judgement day. The central government has constituted an independent 15 member trust to oversee the construction of Grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya, after the announcement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.

The members of the trust Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha kshtra include senior Lawyer K Parasaran, Jagatguru Shankracharya, Jyothishpeethadheeshwar Swami Vasudev Saraswat Ji Maharaj from Allahabad, Jagatguru Madhavacharya Swami Vishwa Prasnnateerth Ji Maharaj, Pejawar Math in Udupi, Yugpurush Parmanand Ji Maharaj from Haridwar, Swami Govind Devgiri Ji Maharaj from Pune, Vimlendra Mohan Pratap Mishra from Ayodhya.

Apart from these, Anil Mishra, a homoeopathic doctor from Ayodhya, Kameshwar Chaupal from Patna who is a scheduled caste member, and Mahant Dinendra das of Nirmohi Akhara Ayodhya Baithak are also made members of the trust.

Two prominent representatives will be nominated by the Board of Trustees with a majority resolution. One representative will be nominated by Centre who shall be a serving member of IAS and not below the rank of Joint Secretary to the government. The District Magistrate or Ayodhya will be the ex officio trustee if he’s a practising Hindu. All the nominated members must be practising Hindus. If the Ayodhya DM is not Hindu, then the additional magistrate will be nominated.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday announced in Lok Sabha that the Cabinet has cleared the trust that will manage the 67 acre land in Ayodhya where the Grand Ram Mandir will be built.

PM Modi had said in his speech announcing the decision, “keeping in mind the construction of the temple and the spirit of the devotees who will come to pay obeisance to Ram Lalla in the future, the government has taken important decisions to transfer the whole of approximately 67.7 acres acquired land to the new trust”.

“We have readied a scheme for the development of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. A trust has been formed, it is called ‘Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teertha Kshetra’, PM had said.

He had also declared that the UP government has agreed to give the 5-acre land to Sunni Waqf Board as directed by the Supreme Court in the Ayodhya Matter.
