Over Four Hundred Sacks of Currency Notes at Rats’ Mercy in Tirumala Temple

Over 400 sacks, containing crores of rupees currency notes, are rotting in a cellar in Tirumala, the hill-abode of Lord Venkateswara in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.
Rats too are said to be having a field day gorging these notes, which lie crumpled in the sacks, according to a report in Eenadu, the popular Telugu daily.
The currency notes were the offerings of devotees to Hinduism’s richest and most visited temple. The notes range in denomination from Rs. Two to Rs. 50, and were deposited in the celebrated temple hundi.
The Tirumala-Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) has a separate wing which is in charge counting the offerings made by devotees. Officials of this department, known as parakamani, have reportedly thrown up their hands, expressing their inability to count these offerings.
The TTD has on its rolls over 9,000 regular employees. Besides, it has about 11,000 out-sourced workers. Also, it regularly takes the help of devotee-volunteers, known as Srivari Sevaks. Still, it is unable to find enough hands to count the notes in the sacks, Eenadu reports.
The daily quotes the Deputy Executive Officer of the government-controlled temple as saying that the situation had come to such a pass due to lack of parakamani sevaks in sufficient numbers. “We will soon launch a special drive to count these notes,” he added.
TTD rules stipulate that only serving or retired employees of government or public-sector undertakings be permitted to work as parakamani sevaks.
