BHUBANESWAR: The state government should evolve a mechanism to identify huge landed properties of several religious institutions, an assembly committee has said.

The lands are either not identified or are encroached by people.

In a recent report, the committee, headed by Berhampur MLA Ramesh Chandra Chyau Patnaik, expressed concern over the rampant encroachment and observed, "If such trend continues, it may become an uphill task for the government to demarcate and protect endowment property in future."

The panel pointed out that the government after identifying such lands should facilitate their publication in official gazette for better protection.

The report said appropriate steps should be taken with a sense of urgency for utilizing services of retired civil servants as officers-on-special duty to manage the day-to-day works of endowment administration, which is handicapped by acute dearth of staff.

The committee emphasized the need for enhancing the one-time subsidy grant from Rs 5 crore to Rs 10 crore to 792 Jagannath temples and Hindu religious institutions to meet their annual festival and daily ritual expenses.

It further recommended making necessary provision in supplementary stage to ensure improvement of surroundings of Mangala Temple and Deuli Mutt at Kakatpur, apart from renovating the Prachi river. "Prachi, which is linked to Jagannath cult, is in bad shape," the committee observed, recommending for its renovation.

It said subsidy grant should be extended for improvement of 3,836 Wakf institutions in the state. Steps should be taken to renovate imamwadas and landed properties belonging to Muslim religious institutions, which are in a dilapidated condition. The panel batted for providing Rs 2 crore for construction of proposed state Haj house.
