These Temple in Dakshina Kannada Go Digital As They Opt For E Hundi Facility: Check Out

Many temples in Dakshina Kannada, including Mangaladevi Temple in Mangalore has opted for the e-Hundi facility. The Temples have adopted this new model of revenue generation through electronic hundi collection as many follow digital payment systems now. At Mangaladevi Temple the facility was launched recently during the Dasara celebrations as the Temple authorities expected a huge flow of devotees to the Temple. As per the facility, a QR-Code has been made available to make the payments.  The stickers with QR codes have been pasted on all the 20 hundis of the temple. This facility will save time in hand counting the donated money.

Sources reveal that at the Kukke Shree Subrahmanya Temple, the average collection per day through e-hundis is approximately Rs 6,000 per day. Also, since the QR codes are prominently placed on the hundis, and the devotees can scan from a distance of about 10ft, it is going to help devotees, especially when the temple is overcrowded. Dependency on traditional donation boxes at temples may reduce gradually, and in turn, it will also bring down the burden on staff engaged in counting cash in the boxes. Temples will be able to get the collection data in the form of bank statements, on an everyday basis, it is learnt.

Five temples, including Kateel Durgaparameshwari, Kukke Subrahmanya, Mangaladevi, Puttur Mahalingeshwara and Sahasralingeshwara Temple, Uppinangady, have already introduced e-hundis. In the next few days, more temples, including Shree Rajarajeshwari Temple, Polali, Bappanadu Durgaparameshwari Temple, Panolibail Kallurti Daivasthana, Kadri Manjunatha Temple and Kudupu Ananthapadmanabha Temple, are all set to introduce e-hundis. Dakshina Kannada district has 38 A grade, 42 B grade and 440 C grade temples.
