Banglahant Desk: The Modi government took an important decision regarding the Ram temple in Ayodhya amidst the economic crisis in Corona. The Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust was brought under Section 80-G of the Income Tax Act. As a result, the donor does not have to pay tax on the money donated for the construction of the temple of Ram Janmabhoomi.
Corona has already broken the backbone of the country's economy. Millions of workers are losing their jobs. The coffers of the Central and State Governments are constantly running low. In this situation, the center will not have to pay tax on the money donated for the construction of the Ram temple, the center said. The statement said that Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra is a place of worship for common people. Moreover, it has a distinct historical significance. That is why the Ram Mandir is getting tax exemption in the case of grants under this Act.
Under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act, tax exemptions are available for the construction of any historically important building or place of worship. The Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust also applied for tax exemption under the Act. Which was approved by the Modi government.
Incidentally, after a long legal battle, the Supreme Court announced the verdict in the historic Ayodhya case on November 9 last year. The then Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Ranjan Gogoi, ruled in a lengthy verdict that the disputed land in Ayodhya would go under the Ram Janmabhoomi Nass. The Constitutional Bench of the apex court directed the Sunni Waqf Board to provide alternative 5 acres of land for the construction of the mosque. The apex court also directed to start the process of construction of the temple by forming a trust in the disputed area.
