Shirdi: September 22, 2021, 2021 , by News Desk
As per notification number SST. 1019/C.R. 9/D-16 issued on Thursday Sep 16, 2021 by the Law and Judiciary department under the provisions of Shree Saibaba Sansthan Trust (Shirdi) Act of 2004, a new management committee of Trustees was appointed by the Government of Maharashtra.
The appointment was challenged in the Mumbai High court. In response to the PIL case before their bench, Justices of Aurangabad Bench of the Mumbai High Court, Ravindra V. Ghuge and Nya. S. G. Mehre gave an interim order that no policy decision should be taken, no expenditure should be sanctioned, no appointments should be made or no new member should be included till further orders by the newly appointed Trustees of Shree Sai Baba Sansthan.
The next hearing on the PIL will be held on September 23. The interim order was passed by the bench after hearing the civil petition filed by Uttamrao Rambhaji Shelke, former trustee of the institute. The new management committee took over from the ad hoc committee without the permission of the high court.
The two main objections raised by the civil application are that the new committee appointed by the government was not constituted as per the law and took charge without the Court’s approval.
