Ram Janmbhumi Teerth Kshetra Trust has applied for permission from the Ministry of Home Affairs under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA). The trust is also going to open an NRI account with Punjab National Bank.
The donation can also be taken from millions of devotees living abroad for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. There is a competition to provide financial support from the devotees settled abroad for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has now applied for permission from the Ministry of Home Affairs under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) in view of the daily calls coming from the office to donate money from abroad.
Please tell that since the Bhoomipujan in Ayodhya, the process of giving donations for the construction of the temple is fast. People giving donations are sending donations through a check, money order, online transfer, jewelry including cash, silver bricks, etc.
According to the trust sources, more than Rs 70 crore has been deposited in the account of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust for the Ram temple.
Most of the donations have come to the SBI account of the trust through online transfer. About 20 to 30 thousand cash is coming daily in the office of Ram Mandir Trust.
Apart from this, many checks are also coming in daily, which are deposited in the bank account of the trust. Apart from this, money orders are also coming to the post office in large numbers.
Till now, the problem is that there are a lot of calls to Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust to give donations from NRIs living abroad, but the trust is not authorized to receive foreign donations.
Now the trust has applied for approval from the Ministry of Home Affairs for foreign donations under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act. The trust is also going to open an NRI account with Punjab National Bank to get donations from NRIs.
Under the law, when an individual or an NGO in India receives donations from a foreign country, it has to comply with the rules of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) ie Foreign Cooperation Regulation Act.
FCRA 1976 was first implemented, but in 2010 came the new Foreign Contribution Regulation Act-2010, which has been implemented from 1 May 2011.
