February 15, 1949, the States Ministry issued a directive that it was no longer necessary
for the temple or any land in Prabhasa Patan to vest in the Government of India. The
temple and the land which were then in the jurisdiction of the Saurashtra Government
(Junagadh having merged in the meantime) and such property rights as were considered
necessary for the proper fulfilment of the Trust, would later vest in the Trustees.
The draft Trust Deed, which required considerable amendments, was directed to be sent back to me.
