Kerala Temple Trust To Face Audit, Says Supreme Court, Rejects Exemption Plea

New Delhi:

The Padmanabhaswamy Temple Trust will face an audit of income and expenses for the past 25 years, the Supreme Court clarified Wednesday. The audit will include finances of the Kerala temple and the governing trust and will take place in three months’ time, the court said.

Created by the former Travancore royal family, the trust had moved the court seeking exemption from this audit, which was initially ordered last year for the temple in Thiruvananthapuram.

The trust had argued it is a distinct entity and that the court had meant for only the temple to be audited.

The temple’s administrative committee (headed by a district judge) had further argued that it is already under great financial stress, and that the trust was evading its responsibility of meeting day-to-day expenses
