Ayodhya, April 16, 2021: 15,000 cheques of Rs 22 crore donated for the construction of the Ram temple have bounced. This has been revealed in the audit report of the ‘Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirthakshetra Trust, created by the central government for the construction of the Ram temple.

In the audit report, the trust officials have said that this has happened due to a shortage of funds in the respective bank accounts or due to faults such as overwriting and signature mismatch.

Trust member Dr Anil Mishra said that banks are being talked about in this regard and efforts are being made to transfer funds in cases of technical shortfalls.

Mishra said that banks will be allowed to rectify their flaws to those whose cheques issued by them have bounced. Treasurer Swami Govinddev Giri said to the trust that out of 15,000 cheques bounced, 2,000 have been collected from Ayodhya itself. Apart from this, another 13,000 cheques have come from other parts of the country. Swami Govind Dev Giri said that we are returning the bounced cheques and there is an appeal to the donating people to issue a new cheque once again. However, this number of cheque bounces is quite high.

A fund-raising campaign was launched by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and other organizations associated with it for the construction of the Ram temple. The campaign ran from 15 January to 17 February. It is being said that a donation of Rs 2,500 crore has been achieved during this campaign. However, no official data has so far been provided by the Trust in this regard. The highest donation of Rs 515 crores has been received from Rajasthan for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Champat Rai says that the temple will be constructed in two and a half acres.

There will be no effect of flood on the temple

In addition to this, the park will be built on six acres around the temple. Retaining walls will be built underground to prevent the effects of a flood. This work will be completed in three years, we are working with this preparation. He said, ‘We are all trying to create an environment-friendly atmosphere. Architects are working on what should be built on the remaining 64 acres of land outside the temple’s courtyard. In the month of August, 70 acres of land has been surveyed by a Jaipur-based company.
