The Centre will hand over the 67-acre land acquired in Ayodhya to the newly formed Ram Temple trust, to oversee the construction of Ram temple, announce Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday (February 16).

After the land was acquired by the Central government, SC had ordered the land to be in their possession until the resolution of the dispute.

“Government has taken another big decision related to the Ram Temple (in Ayodhya). The 67-acre land acquired under the Ayodhya law will be transferred in its entirety to the newly formed Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust. The grandeur and divinity of the Temple built on this big piece of land will increase,” Prime Minister said.
