Key Points: This 15 member’s trust will also include a Dalit representative who would be in-charge of the entire land. The trust has been set up on the lines of Supreme Court direction to the central government in November 2019 to formulate a scheme with necessary provisions for the setting up of a trust within three months for the construction of the temple. Background On 9 November 2019, in its verdict, the Supreme Court ordered the construction of a Ram temple by a trust at the disputed site of Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot an alternative 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a new mosque at a “prominent” place in the holy town in Uttar Pradesh.
