    SGPC gets latest machine to print Guru Granth Sahib
    Varinder Singh
    Tribune News Service

    Amritsar, December 12
    Guru Granth Sahib will now be printed on an ultra-modern Germany-made
    and fully computerised four-colour offset printing machine that has
    been acquired by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC)
    at a cost of Rs 4.5 crore.

    The SGPC was already equipped with three two-colour offset printing
    machines. The new machine has been acquired and installed by the SGPC
    at its new golden offset printing press based at local Gurdwara
    Ramsar Sahib, in its bid to keep pace with the latest printing
    technology in the world.

    The newly installed machine was inaugurated by SGPC chief Avtar Singh
    at the SGPC press here today. The first print which came out of the
    machine was that of a golden picture of the Sanctum-Sanctorum. The
    work for installation of the new machine, it was learnt, was
    undertaken by Baba Labh Singh Ji of Quila Anandgarh wale who was also
    assigned with the 'kar sewa' of the new building of the SGPC printing
    press. "We have installed the machine with an objective to bring
    about new printing technology in respect of printing of Guru Granth
    Sahib. The new machine has the capacity to print 3,000 to 15,000
    pages per hour," said the SGPC chief, adding the machine has already
    started functioning.

    He also honoured Baba Labh Singh, Baba Harbhajan Singh, Daljit Singh
    SDO and Bibi Kulwinder Kaur for their contribution towards the project.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
