More financial assistance sought

Staff Reporter

PUDUCHERRY: People’s Unity Forum has appealed to the Lieutenant Governor to enhance the annual financial aid for temples from Rs. 15, 000 to Rs. 20, 000 for the year 2010.

According to a copy of the letter sent to the Lieutenant Governor, the increase in aid was promised in the last budget session, but no Government Order had been issued for its implementation.

The government had also not uniformly allotted funds to small temples in Puducherry for conducting daily pooja.

Irregularities in the Department of Hindu Religious Institutions was also a reason for the delay, the letter said.
