Post valuation, it was decided that land to be offered by Vadtal temple in exchange of old bus-station plot should be greater in size to match the value of old bus station plot. The temple trust agreed to this. Later the temple trust also agreed to State government’s proposal that new bus station should be built by temple trust.
