As per news report of NDTV, lands like these, which belong to temple trusts, are generally given to caretaker priests for their use in return for the fact that they perform the pujas and carry out rituals in village temples. Such lands are called "Mandir Mafi " and are a source of income for priests who are caretakers of village temples in Rajasthan. But this land became the source of a dispute in Rajasthan's Karauli.
