Ever since Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Board decided to deposit 1,300 kg gold in banks under gold monetisation scheme, the value of Lord Venkateswara has increased further. Every year, devotees offer nearly 800 kgs in the form of gold, to Tirumala Lord. Not only that, but also several hundered kgs of silver and cash are deposited in Lord's Hundi, annually. The TTD will receive gold or cash in return for the deposits, as per the scheme.
