Srinivas PoojatyMangaluru: There is no question of bringing under Endowments department to the private temples, said, Kota Srinivas Poojary, Minister of Muzrai from Revenue department of Karnataka

Speaking to the reporters, Poojary said, ” Religious Endowment Act was amended in 2015 which required all the religious temples to be registered. The government does not have any rights on private temples and cannot monitor or take over them. We have issued a circular to remind the temples to register under the act”

“The Act was enacted in 2011 and passed in 2015. Circular to remind temples to register under the act was sent in 2016,17,18,19,20. It is a normal process. This year the circular was sent without my notice. But, there is no question of acquisition of private temples. We will verify if anyone says that the circular should be withdrawn. Private temples will remain private,” he added.
