Kathmandu, November 5

Guthi Sansthan has failed to meet to its revenue target for fiscal 2018-19, stated its annual progress review report published today.

According to the report, it collected revenue of only Rs 684.4 million against its target of Rs 832.8 million. Guthi Sansthan missed its revenue target owing to poor recovery of house rent dues and arrears. It was, however, successful in recovering land revenue dues, application fee, and fine.

The government body is mandated to utilise movable and immovable property of raj guthi or income accruing therefrom for any existing and additional religious, educational, cultural, social and philanthropic purpose; manage bheti in cash or kind offered to temples and shrines; protect ancient ornaments; carry out farming, horticulture and animal husbandry and enter into contract to carryout works of raj guthi. It is also mandated to lease out the trust lands to tenants for farming.

The report stated that Guthi Sansthan had developed a software application to record guthi heritage, cash, goods and trust details.

“In the first phase, data entry of Kavre district has been completed and this programme is underway in Kathmandu valley and other districts,” read the report. According to the report, restoration of ancient monuments destroyed or damaged in the 2015-earthquakes witnessed no progress as the National Reconstruction Authority had yet to sanction budget to reconstruction projects. Guthi Sansthan has started constructing physical infrastructure in heritage sites in coordination with concerned local levels, read the report.
