The Gods are now primed to receive your offerings real time via Mobile Phones, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, including Sundays and all Bank Holidays. You may be hard pressed for time to go on a pilgrimage and make an offering or there may be times when on the spur of the moment you want to make an offering. Realizing the latent demand for making such on-the-spot donations, Banks, in association with the 'National Payments Corporation of India Ltd' (NPCI) have launched the 'Immediate Payment Service' (IMPS) based Donations which are an instant, interbank electronic fund transfer service that can be initiated only through mobile phones.

IMPS is currently being used for mobile fund transfers, utility bill payments, airline and movie ticketing. Unlike Internet banking, in mobile banking there is no fear of a hacker breaking into a bank account and siphoning off money. While the sentiment associated with depositing the offering physically in the hundi/donation box cannot be replaced, the IMPS-based donation may sate the desire of those wanting to make an offering without any delay.

Devotees can now make instant offerings @ 1. Shri Shirdi Saibaba Sansthan Trust`Shirdi. 2. Siddhivinayak Ganapati Mandir`Mumbai. 3. Lalbaugcha Raja`Mumbai. 4. Sarasbaug Ganapati Temple`Pune. 5. Shree Ganesh Mandir Sansthan`Dombivli. 6. Dharmasthala Manjunatha Swamy Temple`Karnataka. 7. Vallarpadom Church`Ernakulam, Kerala. 8. St.Antony’s Shrine`Kaloor, Kerala. These religious places that have joined the ‘donation through IMPS’ bandwagon have a unique Mobile number and a 7-digit 'Mobile Money Identifier' (MMID) each for receiving funds. Pre-Requisites for Mobile Banking through IMPS:

A) Registration for Remitter (Sender): 1) Register yourself for mobile banking service with your Bank. 2) Get Mobile Money Identifier (MMID) and MPIN from your Bank. 3) To use SMS facility for fund transfers, check if your Bank provides IMPS on SMS.
