Tirupati, 20 February 2016: TTD EO Dr D Sambasiva Rao expressed his immense pleasure to collaborate with the renowned IT company Tata Consultancy Services to build up a “Digital Tirumala” soon in order to provide enhanced services to multitude of visiting pilgrims to hill town.

A review meeting on TTD IT Transformation and TCS Governance was held in the SPRH by TTD EO to which the CEO of TCS Sri Chandra Sekhar also participated and reviewed on various developmental IT related projects which have already initiated and going to be brought soon in detail.

The EO complimented the TCS for coming forward to offer its assistance as Corporate Social Responsibility to TTD in bringing out the technological revolution in the institution with an aim to provide better services for the convenience of the pilgrims.

The EO said, as the pilgrims to Tirumala temple are incredibly increasing year after year, TTD is envisaging to use the technology to the best possible extend specially in the areas of darshan, accommodation, laddu prasadam distribution etc.”In the last one year, with the help of TCS, we have made significant improvement in darshan and accommodation by deploying the best-in class systems. The on-line booking of Rs.300, arjitha seva tickets, accommodation, e-Hundi, Dmat, e-books are just few to mention. But still there is a long way to go and need to integrate the system by developing a next gen application,” he strongly felt.
