Kerala Govt have Decided to give help of Rs 8 Crore for Temple renovations to Temples under the Malabar Devaswom Board and various other private trusts in north Kerala. The distribution of funds, through the offices of five Devaswom Assistant Commissioners, which was formally inaugurated by M.K. Raghavan, MP, here on Sunday, will be completed in the Malabar region within a couple of weeks.

The board officials said the renovation package would include the amount sanctioned by the government in 2011-12 and 2012-2013 financial years. Though the fund was sanctioned, it was not distributed in the previous fiscal.

In the first phase, 965 temples were selected for the aid. The list included no fewer than 62 temples managed by backward communities. In the second phase, 829 temples, including 244 privately controlled ones, were considered for the aid. Over 45 temples managed by the backward communities, which were badly in need of financial support for renovation work, were considered for the aid.

Malabar Devaswom Board Commissioner K. Chandran said the government considered the requests from all needy temples equally, which even included temples controlled by local temple committees and families.
