Sri Sosale Vyasaraja Mutt Administrative Officer K Jairaj on Monday said the financial condition of the mutt has “improved due to efficient accounting processes and other measures initiated under the guidance of the advisory committee which includes former chief justice of India M N Venkatachalaiah”.

He said the State government appointed him as the Administrative Officer of the mutt two years ago. “Since then, the mutt has generated a revenue of `4.88 crore and has a savings of `1.25 crore now”.

Speaking to reporters here, Jairaj said, “The pontiff had alienated the mutt’s properties and was not paying salary to employees when the government appointed the administrator to the mutt following the directions of the High Court. Today, salary is being paid to all 100 employees of the mutt through cheques in time. We have undertaken works to renovate the existing mutt buildings at Mysore, Srirangapatna, Thirumakudalu, Sosale and  on Benne Govindappa Road at a cost of `55.38 lakh. Tenders have been floated to ensure the work is done at the least possible cost and are awarded in a transparent manner”.

Jairaj said salary of the mutt’s employees have been revised thrice since he has taken over the mutt. The mutt’s website was inaugurated by Sudha Murthy and all the activities of the mutt are being uploaded on the website, he said.

“Measures have been initiated to ensure that the rent from the mutt’s properties are collected in time and the revenue is accounted. Steps have been initiated to recover the mutt’s properties which were alienated in Srirangam, Madurai and Kandakur”, Jairaj added.
