Kerala high court gives Chathukutty additional charge of board

KOZHIKODE: The Kerala high court has given president of Malabar Devaswom Board Adv P Chathukutty the additional charge of Commissioner of the board.

The direction was taken after the state government failed to take measures to resolve the crisis in the administration of temples that come under the board. The High court had earlier given direction to the state government to take measures to overcome the present standstill in the temple administration. But the state government failed to do so.

The absence of commissioner since March, 2012, has hit the functioning of the 1,337 temples coming under the administration of Malabar Devaswom Board. The temples in the six districts of Kasargod, Kannur, Wayanad, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Palakkad and parts of Thrissur, excluding those under the Cochin and the Guruvayur Devaswom Board are managed by the Malabar Devaswom Board. The board could not implement around 300 decisions taken since January.

The appointment of temple administrative committees, transfer and posting of temple employees and day-today activities of the temples were also seriously affected.

Adv P Chathukutty, new Commissioner of board said that all the pending decisions will be implemented at the earliest. The board has sanctioned Rs.3 crore for the temple renovations which will be carried out on war footing,” he said.
