India’s current ruling party, National Democratic Alliance,has put Ayodhya Ram Janmbhoomi temple trust under section 80G of the Income Tax Act. Section 80G is concerned with deductions on contributions made to particular charitable organizations or relief funds.
With this move the Narendra Modi led NDA government has exempted the Ram Janmbhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust from the related provisions of income tax for the financial year 2020-21. This trust was created especially to undertake the construction of the temple and constitutes a panel of 15 members.
The central board of direct taxes has taken this decision on the grounds that the forthcoming Ram temple in Ayodhya would be a location of historic eminence and a place for public to worship.
The verdict by the Supreme Court to construct the temple directed the government to form the trust within three months and also allot five acres of land to Sunni Waqf Board before February 9. Now, seeing the current situations the temple is expected to open for worshipping in the year 2022.
