Kathmandu: In Pashupatinath temple, donations can now be made through the QR code system.

For this, devices have been kept in the temple. The code kept there can be donated to the account of Pashupati Area Development Fund in the bank from the online pay system using mobile.

It is believed that the donations received in the name of Pashupatinath and offerings will also be transparent.

An agreement has also been reached today in collaboration with the Fund and Bank of Kathmandu Limited to set up a system of online donation through QR code at four places in the Pashupatinath temple area.

Inaugurating the ‘QR Code’ system, Governor of Nepal Rastra Bank Maha Prasad Adhikari said that this system should be developed across the country.

He stressed the need to raise awareness across the country. Member Secretary of the Fund Dr. Pradip Dhakal said that technology has freed them from the situation of not wanting to take back money in some cases as there is a system of giving money while buying goods. Chairman of Bank of Kathmandu Limited Prakash Shrestha informed that this service will be extended to other monasteries in the country as well.
