Sabarimala temple in Kerala
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said there was no stay on its earlier ruling allowing women of all ages to enter the Sabarimala temple in Kerala.

The clarification came during a hearing of another case related to the management of temples, before a bench led by Justice NV Ramana.

As of now, the September 2018 ruling revoking the earlier prohibition on the entry of women between 10 and 50 years of age holds the field, Justice BR Gavai, who sat along Justice Ramana, said. The Kerala government had come up with a common Act which would govern all temples in the state and had proposed a one-third reservation for women on the proposed temple advisory committees as part of its liberal push.


The bench though wasn’t too happy with it, and directed the state to come up with a separate law dealing with only Sabarimala by mid-January. The top court had on August 27, 2019, asked the state to enact a law for Sabarimala but the state had only come up with changes to the Travancore-Cochin Hindu Religious Institutions Act.
