HDFC Bank on Saturday signed an agreement with Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee for offering e-collection through HDFC Bank Payment Gateway.

HDFC Bank Head, Operations, A Rajan and Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president Avtar Singh Makkar formally launched the payment gateway.

SGPC secretaries Joginder Singh and Dalmegh Singh and HDFC Bank regional head Sitanshu Mitra were present on the occasion.

Devotees across the globe unable to make trip to Amritsar can now have the satisfaction of instantaneously getting their donations reach Harmandar Sahib through a user-friendly secure website feature of HDFC Bank. The website offers a variety of payment options to the devotees to make their offerings, including direct debit to their accounts with the HDFC Bank, or pay by a debit card or a credit card of any bank.

In a release, Rajan said, “This tie-up will enable lakhs of devotees spread across the world to conveniently send their offerings to the shrine using HDFC Bank’s secured net banking services. It also enables the devotees to select the specific purpose for which the donation is made.”

“We welcome the bank’s initiative as it offers devotees a convenient way of showering their gratitude,” Makkar said.

HDFC Bank has pioneered the concept of electronic religious offering and is already offering this facility to major temples across the country.
