Although the statistics of the families contacted are yet to come, but it is estimated that we have liaised with about 100 million families and Samarpan (contributions) have been received from every quarter and walk of life of society. During this drive, many such occasions and episodes also came which moved the minds and hearts of the volunteers. At many places, while even the beggars made their contributions, the daily wagers and small farmers also solemnly made their prayerful offerings. The Samarpan of the Rambhakt Muslim society is also significant. Devotees from outside Bharat are requested to wait a little more. They will be notified upon completion of FCRA (Foreign Contribution [Regulation] Act) formalities, said Rai, adding that “this month, the audit of the campaign in every district of the country would also be completed.”

To maintain transparency of the entire campaign, while 49 control rooms were working across the country, 23 qualified Karyakartas led by two chartered accountants at the main centre in Delhi, were constantly in touch with the entire network to monitor the accounts. The app, created by Dhanusha Infotech Company of Hyderabad, did a commendable job as a meticulously-built digital network to act as a digital bridge among the Karyakartas, banks and the trust.
Updating about the work going on at the Janmbhoomi site, Champat Rai said that the foundation digging and earth removal works are almost 60% completed and it is expected that the foundation filling work will get started in the first week of April-2021.
