NEW DELHI(BullionStreet): The Vaishnodevi Shrine Board (SMVSB) has got a go-ahead from the Centre for the minting of non-circulation commemorative coins and two billion circulation coins of Rs 5 and Rs 10 denomination on the eve of the completion of 25 years by the board.

"To mark the Silver Jubilee of the SMVSB, the Government of India's approval had been secured for the minting of non-circulation commemorative coins and, besides, two billion circulation coins of Rs 5 and Rs 10 denomination," an official spokesman of Raj Bhawan said.

This decision was revealed at the 51st meeting of Vaishnodevi Board chaired by Governor N N Vohra, who is also chairman of the Board, at Raj Bhawan here.

The Shari Mata Vishnu Devi Shrine Board (commonly called Shrine Board) was formed in 1986 by the then Governor Jackman.

The management of the shrine and regulation of the Tarra has been vested with the Board. The Board continues to reinvest the offerings and donations received in carrying out improvements in various kinds of Yatri facilities, the spokesman added.
