Tirumala, 19 April 2017: The temple management of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams(TTD) has been operating all the e-Darshan counters present across the country as usual.
It may be mentioned here that TTD is running 86 e-Darshan counters out of which 50 are being operated by Vijaya Bank. Out of these 50 counters, 27 centres are located in TTD information counters. When Vijaya Bank has expressed its inability to run these centres as these centres are selling hardly two to three Tickets only, TTD as an alternative measure has decided to issue Rs.300 tickets as pre printed tokens in these 27 counters located in its information centre premises with its own TTD staff for the convenience of the pilgrims which has become operational from Wednesday onwards.
However the Vijaya Bank will run rest of the counters with the contract staff as usual.
The temple management is also thinking of introducing new scheme by name ” Divyanugraham” in Seva tickets quota for the sake of pilgrims soon.
