Digital passbooks for donors before April 30
Tirupati: The donors, offering largesse to TTD trusts and scheme, should get digital passbooks before April 30, said TTD EO Dr D. Sambasiva Rao.
Reviewing with Tirupati in-charge Tirumala JEO KS Sreenivasa Raju on donor management system in his chambers in Tirupati on Thursday, the EO said that the Donor Management System has been introduced to avoid delay and enhance transparency in offering privileges to donors with the help of TCS and TTD IT wing from September 13 last.
With this system, the donors can get their acknowledgement and IT exemption certificate within 48hours of their offerings being generated in banks. “So far 40,000 donors have offered their contributions to various trusts and solo scheme of TTD. Of them, 35 per cent have generated digital passbooks so far. To speed up the services and enhance transparency, I urge the remaining donors to obtain digital passbooks before April 30,” he added.
Adding further he said, “In the last six months after the introduction of the new online system, over 4,200 have donated over Rs 1 lakh and they procured digital passbooks. New donors will get the SMS confirmation within 48 hours. The names of trust-wise donors will also be displayed on our website for transparency,” he added.
On Cottage Donor Management System, the EO said, this new system will be launched from April 1.
“Earlier we used to send the coupons and life certificate through post. Due to postal delay and other reasons both the management and donors used to suffer a lot. But now with the new online system, we have dispensed with life certificate. For self donors, they can send the coupons online a day before. For those who are recommended by donors they should send coupons four days earlier. For the donors have to mention the names of those whom they are recommending on the coupons itself online”, he maintained.
To prevent the misuse of letters on the name of VIPs, the signatures of all VIPs will be gathered and an SMS alert to their mobile numbers will be sent soon after issuing Arjitha Seva or VIP darshan ticket, the EO said. “In case of any problem, the donors can contact our call centres, which will function round the clock”, he added.
