Many Sai Devotees are ot able to go to Shird but they have desire to donate something to Baba in their hearts. So they send money through post, money order or any other method. But there is always a possibility of delay and other inconvinience of the amount reaching to Sansthan due to this medium of donation. Taking this inconvinience in light, Sansthan earlier started net banking transfer facility in banks like State Bank of India, Union Bank of India, HDFC Bank and Axis Bank. But only those devotees can avail the benefit of net banking who hold account in these banks. Thus Sansthan has started a facility for online donation through medium of payment gateway by HDFC Bank.
It was first used by Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh. All the amount collected in this gateway will be deposited in the account of Sansthan in State Bank of India on daily basis. The payee devotees will be sent dontation receitp and Udi Prasad by Sansthan. The most important benefit of this gateway is that any currency will be converted into equivalent Indian currency. By this gateway facility devotees can log on to Sansthan website and give online donation through any debit/credit card (including master card, visa card, american express card).
During the inaugration of this facility, Shri Harshavardhan Patil (Minister, Govt. of Maharashtra), Shri. Baba Saheb Vikhe Patil (Fourteenth Lok Sabha Member, Indian National Congress), Shri Manikrao Thakre (Chairman of Congress Committee of Mahashtra Region), Shri Jayant Sasane (Chairman of Shirdi Sai Baba Sansthan), Shri Dr. Eknath Gondkar (Member of Shirdi Sansthan), Shri Suresh Vable, Shri Ashok Khambekar, Shri Sumitra Kote (Member of Shirdi Sansthan), Shri Kishore More (Member of Shirdi Sansthan), etc were present.
