The TTD Executive Officer, Sri IYR Krishna Rao held a high-level meeting with Vedic Parirakshana Trust executive members at Tirumala on Wednesday at Annamaiah Bhavan.  Some important decisions have been taken in the meeting towards the welfare of 2500 Vedic pandit families in the country as identified by the Sri Venkateswara Vedic University.
