Mathura: How a spiritual guru, known for his simplicity and preaching simple living, established an empire of Rs 12,000 crore in his 116 year life? Estimates have revealed amazing facts about the property that spiritual guru Baba Jai Gurudev has left after his demise in Mathura on Friday after prolonged illness.
Baba has accounts and fixed deposits in more than half a dozen banks. Rs 100 crore is said to be deposited in Baba’s SBI account with Mandi Samiti branch. His immovable property includes mainly the ashram and property on Mathura-Delhi highway. A new ashram is being constructed in Itawah at Khitaura. According to one estimate, Baba Jai Gurudev has land property worth Rs 4,000 crore. There’s a school and a petrol pump in Mathura in the name of Jai Gurudev trust.
Baba’s fleet of cars includes some of the costliest ones, including Palymouth, Mercedes, Skoda and BMW. The total cost of these cars in Baba’s convoy is estimated to be Rs 150 crore.
Surprisingly, the daily offerings in ashrams add Rs 10-12 lakh to Baba’s property monthly. These offerings don’t include the special days like Purnima, Holi and Guru Purnima.
