Tata Consultancy Services To Manage Ram Temple Trust Funds

The Ram Temple Trust funds that have crossed Rs 3,000 crore, has now been entrusted to corporate giant, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), for developing a digital accounting software.

Ram temple Trust General Secretary Champat Rai confirmed the takeover after the trust faced allegations of corruption over land deals.

As per reports, the decision was taken at the behest of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which had summoned three key Trust members to Mumbai four months ago for a closed-door meeting over the controversial land deals.

TCS has set up its account's office at Ramghat near Ram Janmabhoomi and is scheduled to complete developing the software by December and begin digitisation and management of Trust accounts.

Notably, the VHP crowdfunding campaign for the Ram temple construction was at its peak, conmen hacked into the Trust website and created a fake portal to siphon off funds. Fraudsters also cloned cheques of the Trust's bank account and withdrew big chunks of amount from the PSU bank's clearing house. The Trust got embroiled in court cases over allegations of corruption in land deals, including purchase of nazul land and temples.
