Be honest.Is there anything as forced or necessary donations? People donate when they want to.
If you are offering a service, and the service is not free,and a payment has to be made for the service, why mark the payment as “donation”?
The devotees can donate for the puja through cheque/cash/DD. (link)
There is another implication for this. TAX.No tax need to be paid for donations.Nice idea Mr.Nithyananda.
Nithyananda need to be investigated for the earnings accumulated through these “donations” since they are not really donations and they are charged from the people.
Let me tell an example, if someone cuts your hair,you pay them, thats not a donation.
You get my money, you do my puja.You are a service provider to me.Dont call my money as a donation.Its taxable.
