Telangana Govt is moving to register the temple land in the name of presiding deity of the respective temples. Since, no ambiguous documents proving the ownership of temple land exists currently, encroachment of temple land by influential people is common now. The current move by Govt can nullify this possibility.
The temple authorities or trustees can not transfer the ownership of land to any other people now and, even though they can continue using the land, the income from the land can only be used for the temple purposes only. Instruction regarding this have already send to the district collectors.
