Demonetisation has failed to down the spirits of pilgrims visiting the surrender holy place of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir area of Jammu and Kashmir — the nation's second most extravagant holy place after Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam, Andhra Pradesh.
A sum of Rs 164 crore was offered at the sanctum sanctorum in 2018, of which Rs 1 crore was offered on the most recent day of the year and on January 1, 2019.
Be that as it may, the demonetized cash has ascended to Rs 40 lakh since November 8, 2016, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi reported the choice to battle against the dark cash. The Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board oversees and directs the journey.
"From January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017, we had add up to money offering of Rs 154 crore and from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018, the contributions added up to Rs 164 crore," informed an official of Shri Mata Shrine Board, over anonymity of his name.
On December 31 and January 1, the two imperative days of the timetable year, when the surge of pioneers was at its pinnacle, the hallowed place got money contributions between Rs 80 lakh and Rs 1 crore. "Demonetisation has had no effect. There has been no plunge in contributions. The pattern is empowering yet regardless we have lovers offering demonetised money notes. We have gotten Rs 40 lakh in demonetised cash since November 8, 2016," he further added.
The Reserve Bank of India has declined to acknowledge such notes so they are waste for us. We will arrange them off in a suitable way."
An aggregate of Rs 1.9 crore in trashed money was offered between November 9 and December 9, 2016.
Despite the fact that the board didn't get much demonetised money in the contributions since December 31, 2016, in 2017 and 2018, an aggregate of Rs 40 lakh in such cash was advertised.
