  • I think not to make the matter worst the Tatas and Godrejs intervene and buy up the lands surrounding our sacred Fire Temple and give relief to our community and use the land for their staff recreations and many other such…purposes.

      “the corpus of the Trust, including R94 crore Liability of Refundable Security Deposit, now stands at R228 crore.”
