The Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra has purchased a 7,285 square feet land adjacent to the Ram Janmabhoomi premises. The purchase had been made in accordance with the plan to expand the temple complex area to 107 acres from the present 70 acres.

The trust has paid INR 1 crore for the 7,285 square feet land to its owner, Deep Narain, at a rate of INR 1,373 per square foot. The land is located next to the Asharfi Bhawan. The trust wants to expand the project to 107 acres and still has to acquire 14, 30,195 square feet of land to achieve the target. The owner had signed a registry deed for the land in favour of Champat Rai, the secretary of the trust; Anil Mishra, a member of trust and Apna Dal MLA Indra Pratap Tiwari were present as witnesses. S B Singh is the sub-registrar of Faizabad in whose office the deed was signed.
Anil Mishra, the member of the trust has said “the Trust has purchased two properties. They will be used for increasing facilities for devotees coming to Ayodhya from all across the country,” he also said “We have purchased the land as we need more space for the Ram temple.”
A survey is also undergoing in the adjoining properties for the extension of the temple land.
