The trust has been given 10 days time period to give out information on its assets, revenue and its activities. The Sathya Sai Baba trust will also hold a press conference on Tuesday, Jun 28 (today).
"In the light of the doubts expressed on certain aspects of the functioning of the Trust, it was felt that it was essential to bring out the facts transparently for public knowledge," said a press release from the government.
K Chakravarti, ex-IAS officer, Andhra cadre and Trust Secretary was told to give details about the Sathya Sai's wealth - the number of members in the trust, their background, addresses, contact number, the organisational set up of the trust and other necessary details, said senior officials.
The government has also asked the trust to give out details on its fixed assets, expenditure, yearly accounts of the past 5 years and how it gets funds.
The trust's misdeeds came into light after the police got hold of Rs 35 lakh from a car which belonged to the trust.
Sathya Sai's nephew, RJ Ratnakar and V Srinivasan, trust Member, were questioned by the police when the cash was seized. Ratnakar earlier had rubbished all the allegations.
"They are all allegation and very very few fact on that. The money which was caught doesn't belong to the trust. It belongs to group of devotees," Ratnakar had said.
