RBI comes with an iron hand on Private Banking Institutions...

No further those private banking personnel or their touts can play mischief or pranks with you by providing you unsolicited credit cards, charging hidden tariffs and sending goondas to your residence. Check out these URLs for your quick reference:

  1. Posting in Consumer_Voice_India.
  2. Financial Express News Coverage.

A brief extract of the points are mentioned here:

  1. Each bank sets up a Do-Not-Call Register. If the call center dials a number from these register, the bank would be held responsible.
  2. Any unsolicited credit card issued or activated means the bank is held liable with a penalty of twice the amount.
  3. Card holder's consent is mandatory before the credit limit on the card is enhanced.
  4. Customer has to be given enough breathing time to settle his dues before his credit history is marked as defaulter and released to other banking and financial institutions.
  5. Customer has to get at least 15 days of minimum payment period.
  6. In the case of wrong bill, the customer has to revert back within 60 days from the date of reciept of the bill.
  7. Before any charges are hiked, a one month advance note has to be issued by the card issuer.  If the customer wishes to close the card, on account of these charges, no closure be levied by the bank.
  8. The monthly statement sent by the bank need to carry annualized percentage rates, annual fee, late payment charges and modus operandi adopted in calculation of such fees and charges.
  9. In case a card is being issued to a person with a no-finance background, the principal card holder bears the responsibility.
  10. RBI has full rights to initiate action against erring banks and/or non-banking financial institutions.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.
