Jai Shri Ram!
Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra is in charge of the construction of the Ram Temple at Ayodhya. Two fake cheques of Rs 3.5 lakh and Rs 2.5 lakh were used to withdraw the amount from the bank account of trust.
Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust had written a letter to SBI seeking a reversal of the amount pointing that it was SBI’s mistake in not looking through the cloned cheque. The Ram Mandir Trust has announced that it will now not take any payment in the form of cheques. The Trust also said that it is deciding on an alternate method of payment in a secure manner.
