ARCHAMURTHY

This has another interesting origin. This is due to the Authorities encouraging Annadana Scheme, for which hundreds of donors paid lacs of rupees. Obeisance to the author of the scheme goes in voluntarily. We observe here to the left of corridor two big halls with scores of officers engaged in Parakamani work; one meant for counting coins and another for currency notes. They work from early morning commencing at 6 a.m. and going upto 6 p.m. non stop with two batches of temple staff. The Hundi lies just opposite the Ramanuja shrine and visitors fill it with all sorts of things, like gold jewels, coins, currency notes, samples of industrial products and the like towards redemption of vows taken. In the inner circuit of north eastern corner near Hundi lies Vishwaksen Mandir.

The hundi collections are perennial, and on average the monthly income exceeds crores of rupees. But the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam Board working under the guidance of the Commissioner for the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments of the State Government with an Executive Officer of the cadre of I.A.S. is utilizing it for several charitable purposes, like running of schools, colleges of different categories, hospitals, besides maintaining two Universities of great distinction in the field of Education.
