People like to go cashless nowadays, so, do any temples have e-Hundis to accept donations either through card or Paytm (a payment gateway) in temples?

Is it permitted in our scriptures? Have any acharyas commented on it?

    Kindly Read your question again and think, our scriptures were written long back like in ancient time when digital technology was not in existence. How come you except scripture would write something about it ? Now does it make any sense to Even ask this question ? – TheLittleNaruto Feb 1 at 15:25
  • Don't compare humans artifical inventions with scriptures. Paytym cards are humans find not with respect to divinity. So this question doesn't fit to standard of the site! Kindly analyse before asking these type of questions. – Parabrahman Jyoti Feb 1 at 15:39

    This question is very much about Hinduism as e-religion is going to become a significant part of Hinduism, – S K Feb 1 at 16:24

    @Lazy Lubber please vote to re-open if you disagree with the closure of this question. – S K Feb 1 at 17:48

If whatever is not prohibited is allowed, then it is allowed. Since scriptures couldn't have known about electronic funds transfer, it is not prohibited.

In fact it is routine now to do pujas, samskaras etc. through teleconferencing.
