Tirumala 16 December 2017: The idea behind experimenting the novel scheme of issuing time slotted tokens to Sarva Darshan pilgrims is to provide them a easy and comfortable darshan without waiting in queue lines and compartments for long hours, said TTD Executive Officer Sri Anil Kumar Singhal.

The EO along with Tirumala JEO Sri KS Sreenivasa Raju inspected the SSD counters at Kalyana Vedika and Nandakam Rest house areas. Speaking on this occasion, He said, based on the feed back received from the pilgrims waiting in VQC-2 compartments for Sarva Darshan for over 24 hours when there was heavy crowd, we mulled this scheme of issuing time slots for free darshan pilgrims also, so that they can have comfortable darshan in their allotted time. Already the time slot mechanism was implemented in Rs.300 and footpath darshans which have yielded good results.

After observing the results from December 18 to 23 we are contemplating to launch the scheme in a full-fledged manner from March on wards. From the past fortnight, Tirumala JEO along with a team of senior officers worked day and night on these counters. TTD has deputed 80 senior officers, 300 employees, 75 Trilok and 50 Bank of Baroda employees to man the 117 counters located in 14 locations at Tirumala. Based on the output after the trial run, we are contemplating to set up the Slotted Sarva Darshan (SSD) counters in Tirupati in future”, he maintained.

SE II Sri Rama Chandra Reddy, Temple DyEO Sri Kodanda Rama Rao, Annprasadam DyEO Sri Venugopal, VGO Sri Ravindra Reddy, DyEO KKC Smt Nagaratna were also present.
