Management Committee  
 With the grace of God, Management Committee came into existence in 1984 for the development and upliftment of the temple and neglected surrounding areas. The committee was registered as a society in the year 1986. It was due to the untiring efforts of the founder members of the committee viz. S/Sh. Balbir Singh, Lekh Raj Pathania, Pritam Singh, Shankar Singh, Raghubir Singh, Om Parkash Katoch, Subhash Sharma, Banarsi Lal Mehta, Ram Lal Badiyal, Krishan Singh, Joginder Singh Katoch, Darshan Singh that led to its formation. In the initial years it had to face opposition by the locals and other financial difficulties but under the guidance of respected Shri Vikram Singh Katoch, devoted members and devotees coming from various walks of life, the committee overcame all these hurdles and it is striving for all round the development, upliftment and publicity of the temple. It felt financially crippled with the decision of Hon’ble Court which held that on all offering inside the ancient temple, Priest will have exclusive right. It is now with the financial support of the donors and devotees that the committee is carrying out various activities for the welfare of the people and upkeep and development of the place. The first edition of the history of the temple was brought by the Committee in the year 1992.
