The turmoil over the 12 million Kerala Lotteries Onam bumper winner was resolved on Monday night, and the Kochi cab driver, Jayapalan, submitted the winning ticket and received a certificate to that effect from her bank.
After the winning number was announced Sunday night and two state ministers oversaw the draw, a dozen TV channels descended to find the ticket owner and had a single piece of information: the ticket was Rs. 300, sold from Meenakshi Lotteries in Tripunithura, a suburb of Kochi. .
Social media also joined the search for the owner. “On September 10, I bought the award-winning ticket from the Meenakshi Lottery near Statue Junction because I felt it was a fantastic number, I have to repay the vehicle and home loans and use the remaining amount productively after discussing it with my family,” Jayapalan told reporters in the press.
At home, Jayapalan’s family has a mother, wife and two sons. His wife works as a sweeper, while one son is an electrician and the other a homeo doctor. Meanwhile, the total revenue from the sale of Onam bumper lottery tickets is around 140 crore, of which the Treasury will remain around 4 crore after all tax deductions.
