Kerala HC declared Guruvayoor Devaswom Funds donation to Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund illegal.
19th December 2020
The Kerala high court declared that the Guruvayoor Devaswom Managing Committee can’t provide donations to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund or any other government agency.
The order came in when the bench was answering a reference about the question by the division bench that the G.D.M.C. can make non-religious donations or not? The court overruled the judgement given in Anil V. v. State of Kerala & others.
Further, the court held that G.D.M.C. can only provide these donations and facilities to worshipers & pilgrims in a reasonable distance and not to all the state or outside that.
