CHANDIGARH: The construction work of world's first and only ‘Maat-Pitaa Mandir’ is going on in full swing and by the year 2025, it will be fully ready. The temple is being built by Maat Pitaa Gaudham Trust (MPGD), an NGO at village Khallaur on Banur-Ambala road in Mohali district.

Speaking during a press conference here on Friday, Gyan Chand Walia, founder of Trust said that in just 8 months, the first laying of roof slab ( lanter) of the basement of 20 thousand square feet has been completed and the work is going on very fast.

Walia said that this temple will be dedicated to the parents. He further said that the temple would not have any idol as the devotees would feel the presence of God in their parents.

The objective of the temple would also be to focus on the spiritual benefits of the mother cow while spreading awareness about respecting parents as well, he asserted.

'Maat Pitaa Mandir' which is for all communities and religions will be completely dedicated to the parents where they will be worshiped and respected, he informed.

Meanwhile, the temple has also got a certificate from the World Book of Records as the world's first and only 'Maat Pita Mandir'.

Meanwhile, the Trust is also organizing a program ' Sambh lu maape, rab milju aape' on August 7 at Aggrawal Bhawan, Panchkula.

He clarified that due to non-payment despite issuing instructions to the GM of the mill, a situation of law and order may arise.

Mr. Sarangal said that as per the law , if the farmers are not paid within 14 days of purchase of their sugarcane , the owner have to pay 15 % annual interest under the Sugarcane Control Order 1966 and the Essential Commodities Act 1955.

Deputy commissioner said that according to the legal provisions, the due amount of sugarcane has to be recovered from the said sugar mill with interest so that the farmers can be paid as soon as possible.
