Namghars To Get 2.5 Lakh

Representational

Rupees 2.5 lakh will be allocated to each of 7000 Namghars in the state which are at least 50 years old under the Assam Darshan scheme of the state.

Deputy Commissioners will select 55 Namghars per LAC within a month.

This was announced by Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in a press conference today.

It was also categorically said by him that the definition of Namghar doesn’t include any other place of worship including Temple, Mosque and Church.

The Namghars located in the SC/ST belts will be given priority in the selection process as the inhabitants of those areas have paucity of funds to develop the Namghars on their own, he added.

Priority will also be given to those Namghars which are widely and frequently visited by pilgrims.
