West Bengal Government’s support for Iskcon’s Temple of Vedic Planetarium in Mayapur. ( https://tovp.org )

Extract from HG Basu Ghosh Prabhu’s Vyasapuja offering 2021 to Srila Prabhupada:

” You must be pleased to know that the Chief Minister of West Bengal visited Sridham Mayapur and announced that she would do anything to promote religious tourism in West Bengal. You must be pleased to know that she had a law passed in the State Assembly exempting Iskcon’s Mayapur Tourist Corporation – wholly owned by your Iskcon India Governing Bureau, that you registered at Bombay during 1971- from land ceiling laws up to 750 acres! She further had the West Bengal State Assembly pass an exemption from stamp duties that saved the Mayapur project approximately fifty crores of rupees”(Fifty crores of Indian rupees is equivalent to roughly AU$ 8.8 million or US$ 6.6 million at this date.
