For the self-sufficient temple Shri Sardar Swaroop Shyam Ji (Manji Ka Mandir), the Devasthan Department has requested auction bids through an e-tender process. Ambrai Ghat is a property of the Devasthan Department. For the years 2023–2024, modifications to the entrance fee, pre-wedding fee, and other fees at Ambrai Ghat are planned by the authorities.
The entrance price to Ambrai Ghat for Indian people, including mobile phones, was raised from Rs. 10 to Rs. 20 for the years 2023–2024. For entrance, including a cell phone, foreigners must pay between 50 and 100 rupees. The cost of a pre-wedding photoshoot using any device a DSLR, smartphone, drone, etc has been reduced from Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 3,000. The pre-wedding shoot will be limited to a maximum of 10 persons. From those 10 individuals, an entry fee of Rs. 3000 will be collected in addition to the entry fee. Similar to that, a fee of Rs. 200 must be paid to take images with a photo camera. For using a mobile device to take photos, there will be no price.
A youngster under the age of 10 who is accompanied by a guardian will not be charged an entry price. No other fees, besides the one listed above, will be charged. All forms of dancing programs are prohibited. The above charges must be written in block letters on the display board at the entrance gate in both languages, Hindi and English. The Department will also be able to create boards at its own level in addition to this.
It is notable that in the current year, there was a lot of chaos when the contractor charged Rs.200 extra in the name of mobile in addition to Ambrai Ghat entry fee including mobile and did not give entry without paying the fee. Pradeep Joshi, a contractor operating in the name of Radiant Tours, was also given several notices by the Devasthan Department, but the contractor continued to collect money from tourists in the name of mobile.
According to Assistant Commissioner of Devasthan Department Jatin Gandhi, all decisions on raising the entrance price at Ambrai Ghat for the years 2023–2024 have been made unanimously by the Commissioner at the headquarters level.
