TIRUMALA: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) received a hundi collection of Rs 6.18 crore on Monday, the highest single-day collection after the darshan of Srivari resumed following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions.
"Monday's revenue of Rs 6.18 crore is the highest after the TTD resumed all kinds of sevas and darshans post-COVID restrictions," TTD's Finance Adviser and Chief Accounts Officer O Balaji told The New Indian Express.
The TTD's highest single-day hundi collection ever was Rs 6.45 cr in 2018. In July 2018 too, the TTD got a single-day hundi collection of Rs 6.28 crore. On Monday, the single-day collection went past the Rs 6 crore-mark for the third time in the temple’s history.
With vacations to educational institutions drawing to an end, there was a huge rush of devotees at the hill shrine and it has been receiving more than 65,000 devotees a day on normal days, besides recording more than 80,000 footfalls on weekends.
