Addl Eo Inspects all the Vaikunta Dwara Darshan Tickets Issuing Centres in Tirupati

Tirupati, 19 Dec. 20: As TTD has prepared to issue offline tickets for Vaikunta Dwara Darshanam in Tirupati on December 24, Additional EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy appealed to non-locals not to come to Tirupati for offline tickets.


Along with local MLA and the TTD board special invitee Sri B Karunakar Reddy and Tirupati Urban SP Sri Ramesh Reddy, he inspected all the ticket issuing centres in the temple city on Saturday.


Later talking to media persons he said, as against the usual darshan provision to nearly one lakh devotees every year, this year due to Covid restrictions, darshan will be provided only to 35 thousand devotees, by strictly following all the Covid guidelines during Vaikuntha Dwara Darshanam. 


"For the first time we are opening Vaikuntha Dwaram for 10 days starting from December 25th till January 3rd. We have already issued 20,000 tickets in online for each day in Rs.300 Special Entry Darshan quota. We have also released 20000 SRIVANI tickets in online for these 10 days. Devotees from across the country booked these tickets and the entire online quota exhausted within few hours", he added.


He said, TTD will release one lakh tickets for these 10 days for the sake of locals in offline at five earmarked centres in Tirupati on December 24 following all the Covid 19 norms. Due to prevailing Covid situation, this year we have decided to issue offline tickets only to locals for Vaikunta Dwara darshanam. So, we appeal to non-local devotees not to come to Tirupati for offline tickets as it may result in huge gatherings and might increase the chances of Covid as well also impact on law and order situation", he observed. 


Tirupati Urban SP said, elaborate policing arrangements will be made at these five counters and every Adhaar card will be scrutinized before tokens are issued to locals.


TTD CE Sri Ramesh Reddy, SE 1 Sri Jagadeeshwar Reddy, SE Electrical Sri Venkateswarulu, Additional Health Officer Dr Sunil, VGO Sri Manohar were also present.
