Shifting of Accomodation Allotment to Tirupati

 The TTD Trust Board led by its Chairman Sri YV Subba Reddy on Saturday has resolved to take some decisions keeping in view the increased pilgrim influx to Tirumala post Covid and also the limitations in the accommodation in the Hill town for the sake of multitude of common pilgrims who are visiting Tirumala.


After the Trust Board meeting, briefing the media persons, TTD Chairman said, however, all these Pilgrim-friendly decisions will be implemented after the Puratasi month in a phased manner on Trial-basis. Some excerpts from the meeting:


Board has taken a decision to change the timings in VIP darshan to 10am instead of the existing early hours, to enable Srivari darshan to common pilgrims who will be waiting for hours together in compartments and queue lines.


As the available accommodation in Tirumala will suffice the needs of only a limited number of pilgrims, to avoid the accommodation woes of pilgrims the board has decided to shift the accommodation allotment system to Tirupati. "If the accommodation allotment gets exhausted in Tirumala, we request the pilgrims to book accommodation in Tirupati instead of waiting for long hours in Tirumala", he added. 


With respect to Slotted Sarva Darshanam(SSD) tokens, the Chairman said, issuance of SSD tokens will be re-introduced with a limited number after Puratasi month, while the Sarva Darshan (without tokens) will be operated simultaneously. 




A white paper on TTD properties will be placed on the website for the third consecutive year. A total of 960 properties to the tune of 7123acres worth around Rs.85,705crores.


The District Collector has allotted 300acres towards employees house sites for which we have already paid Rs.60 crores. Apart from this, after the formation of the new Tirupati district, another 132 acres of land has also been provided to TTD for employees' related development activities in future to which we shall have to pay Rs.25 crores.


Construction of PAC 5 in Tirumala at a cost Rs.98 crores was approved in the area behind Govardhan Choultries that could facilitate accommodation to more common pilgrims.


The Board gives nod to construct a four-lane road at Rs.30 crores from Vakulamatha Temple to Pudipatla near Zoo Park 


To set up additional load transformers in Tirumala to meet the geyser and other electrical improvisations carried in the rest houses, the board sanctioned Rs.7.20 crores


Development of SGS Arts College at Rs.6.37crores


Development of TTD Kalyana Mandapam in Nellore at Rs.3crores 


For refurbishing furniture and other requirements in Nandakam Rest House, Rs.2.45crores approved




As the annual festival is taking place after a gap of two years of Covid pandemic, in view of heavy pilgrim rush being anticipated, German Sheds will be laid at different places to accommodate the stranded devotees and also protect them from inclement weather conditions


TTD EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy, other board members, and officials of TTD were also present.

Hyderabad, Sept 24: Hon’ble Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan on Saturday launched the CPR challenge and called upon the people to learn how to do CPR.
