Immovable assets of nearly 35,000 temples to be registered in the name of gods

Immovable assets of nearly 35,000 temples to be registered in the name of gods

Karnataka's state government expedited the registration of immovable assets, predominantly land, owned by 34,563 temples across the state, a TOI report stated.

This decision is aimed at curbing conflicts arising from ownership disputes and ensuring proper utilization of temple lands, the report further reads. 
Bengaluru Rural district leads in the number of registrations, with 156 temple properties, followed by Chikkaballapura at 150. Other districts, including Dakshina Kannada (88), Chamarajanagar (84), and Tumakuru (82), have also witnessed temple property registrations, according to media reports.


Muzrai Minister Ramalinga Reddy told the media that the state now holds absolute ownership over these properties, thereby putting an end to the unilateral control of a few individuals. Since time immemorial, many kingdoms and rulers had granted extensive land to temples -- their value has reached thousands of crores today, he further added.


Meanwhile, reportedly, senior BJP MLC N Ravikumar pointed towards encroachment on temple properties in Bengaluru.

He advocated for the registration of temple properties in the name of the presiding deity, similar to how Wakf Board manages property belonging to Masjids.
