KURUKSHETRA: After taking over management of historical Gurdwaras of Haryana, the ad-hoc Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) passed a budget of Rs 106.50 crore for the session of 2023-24 on Friday.
HSGMC ad-hoc general secretary Gurvinder Singh Dhamija said, “About one-fourth of the total budget Rs 20 will be spent on education. While Rs 16 crore will be spent on the salaries and allowances of the employees. A good budget will be spent in every sector including the medical camps, dispensaries, and printing press.”
He said Rs 2.50 crore will be spent on Dharam Prachar (religious preaching), Rs 6 crore for organising Gurmat Samagam (religious congregations), Rs 25 for sports activities, Rs 2 crore for Lohgarh capital of Khalsa in Yamunanagar district, Rs 50 lakh for Sikligar and Vanjara Sikhs and Rs 50 lakh for health services.
The budget meeting was presided over by HSGMC ad-hoc president Mahant Karamjit Singh, which decided to upgrade machines used for preparing langar (food at community kitchen), computers and other equipment at Gurdwaras in Haryana. A budget of Rs 13.50 crore would be spent on langar and Prasad (holy communion), Rs 50 lakh on digital museum and library, and Rs 1.5 crore for medical college.
HSGMC ad hoc president Mahant Karamjit Singh said, “We will open a Haryana Sikh cooperative bank, and provide employment to educated youth. The committee will also start a technical institute for youth, for which, a Rs 2 crore budget has been kept.”
In an appeal to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), Mahant Karamjit Singh said, “We appeal to the SGPC president and the management to return the funds and vehicles which the SGPC has taken from Haryana since 2014. The committee will also stake its claim on the SGPC’s properties in Chandigarh.”
HSGMC president said Gurdwara Patshahi Chhevin in Kurukshetra, headquarter of HSGMC would be developed as per model Gurdwara.
“Rooms and toilets are in poor condition and these facilities will be improved after renovation. Kurukshetra is a religious city and a large number of people visit here to pay obeisance every year. It has been decided to renovate sarais (inns) attached to the Gurdwara”, said Karamjit Singh.
The HSGMC president added that existing schools will be renovated besides opening new schools as per demand of the Sangat.
He added that the HSGMC has started gathering all information about the Miri Piri Medical College in Shahabad, and its management will be taken over soon.
“Focus will be kept on schemes run by the Union government for minority communities so that community members can benefit from them”, said HSGMC president.
