NOTLA PARKAMANI (Counting Room for paper currency)

The present location where the counting process was carried out was earlier used for several purposes. Due to the increasing rush of pilgrims the location and timings of counting have been changed. At present this mandap is used for counting paper money. Transparent glasses are arranged around this place for the pilgrims to witness the process of counting. There are several heaps of gold, silver, paper money, foreign currency, antique jewellery, silver coins and old legal tender like Kani, ana, ardhana etc. are noticed in this place. These are the offerings of the devotees to the Lord. The counting process is carried out meticulously by the employees of TTD under the supervision of TTD officials. There is the vigilance wing which also overseas the process of counting. Further the entire process of counting is video graphed. In addition two pilgrims are permitted as witnesses to this counting process right from the beginning till the end. The devotees who came to the vimana pradakshina after having the darshan of the Lord at that point of time are selected as witnesses for the ‘Parakamani’. They are the fortunate and the blessed ones to witness this procedure. After the counting is over, these pilgrims have to append their signature as to confirm that the entire process of counting was done perfectly. Then, they are permitted to have another darshan of the Lord and prasadams. With full security, the process of counting is done and the receipt accounts are presented by dawn to the treasurer of the Lord. Nothing is greater than the divine wealth. Let us all sacrifice what ever we can for the good cause. Only the name ‘Govinda’ is everlasting and gives us immense bliss!
