Lord Ganesha devotees have something to cheer about. Mumbai’s famous Siddhivinayak Temple trust has allowed donations like shares or stocks of the companies listed in the name of Lord Ganesha.
The SBI has joined hands with the management of the temple, which is visited by lakhs of people daily, to provide devotees with an electronic platform to make offerings and donations.
It will allow for donations like shares or stocks of listed entities to be made in the electronic format via e-demat account set up specially for the temple.
Going forward, this initiative will extend to other financial instruments like MFs, bonds, gold ETFs etc.
This will be a seamless transfer to the temple. Devotees can avail this opportunity from anywhere through an electronic platform.
