Thiruvananthapuram ∙ The Lottery department is preparing to give a one-day training on money handling to auto driver Anup, a native of Srivaraham, Thiruvananthapuram, who won the Onam bumper worth Rs 25 crore. It has been decided to provide training with the help of Gulati Institute of Finance and Taxation.
Anoop will be trained on long-term investments, how to invest safely and how to pay taxes. The Lotteries Directorate had earlier decided to provide financial training to first prize winners of high prize lotteries. Anup decided to start the training class as it was the biggest amount ever for Onam Bumper.
The lucky winner was found within hours of the Onam bumper draw on the 18th, but the money has not yet reached Anoop’s account. The reason is that there is a slight difference in Anoop’s name in the documents submitted with the lottery ticket, PAN card and Aadhaar card. Lottery Department has written to the bank where Anup submitted the ticket as this will cause problems later. Officials said that after receiving the documents from the bank, they will check and transfer the amount.
Anoop handed over the ticket at Canara Bank. Ranjitha, who lost the first prize when a letter was changed in the lottery ticket and received a consolation prize of Rs 5 lakh, was handed over the amount the day after the draw. In August, the lottery directorate had decided to hand over the prize within three days if the lottery winners produced the necessary documents. After 10% agency commission and 30% tax, the lottery department will hand over Rs 15.75 crore to the Onam bumper winner. After surcharge and cess, the amount available to the winner is Rs 12.89 crore.
