AYODHYA || Map for a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya was passed by voice vote at a meeting of the Ayodhya Development Authority, an official said on Wednesday. The meeting was presided over by divisional commissioner MP Agarwal. The Shri Ram Janma Bhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust had submitted a map of 2.74 lakh plus square metres in which an open area of 2,74,110 and a covered area of 12.879 square metres has been proposed.
The Trust will have to shell out the labour cess other than the development fees, which is expected to be around Rs five crore. Once the fees is submitted, the Authority will give a certified copy approved by it to the Trust to go ahead with the construction of the Ram temple, foundation of which was laid by prime minister Narendra Modi earlier this month.
