Gramapanam

This is the annual subscription payable to the GRAMA SAMUDAYAM before SASTHAPREETHI. This is collected during Mandalam from an auspicious day, during night, going house to house carrying the Changalavatta lamp lighted from Sastha sannidhi. It represents Lord Sastha, and house holders respect and pay the money. Collection starts from single street eastern end and ends in new street southern row western end. Fifty years back it was 5 1/4 equal to 159 paisa which is now raised to Rs.24 a year after registration of SAMUDAYAM.
