CHENNAI: Ten tenants, who have been occupying land owned by Kapaleeswarar temple at prime locations in the city, owe the administration of the Mylapore shrine Rs 5.14 crore in arrears. Despite several reminders and legal notices, they have not responded and continue to stay put on temple property.
The tenants have been occupying the properties for the past few decades and have also sub-let them for residential and commercial purposes. Some of them have approached court and others have paid a part of the arrears as advance.
Except one property in Triplicane, all others are in Mylapore and Mandaveli. “The Triplicane property has an area of 5,135 sqft. The minimum rent pay calculation (commercial) for that site would be at least Rs 1.25 lakh per month,” said Temple Worshippers Society president T R Ramesh.
