After observing the decline in daily Covid- 19 cases, the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is likely to allow more devotees for darshan in the coming days. At present daily 5000 people are being allowed darshan following the Covid restrictions.
TTD Chairman YV Subba Reddy said, "The number will be gradually increased to 10,000 to 15,000 in the coming days as Covid cases are on the decline. However, Covid norms will be strictly adhered while allowing more devotees."
A decision to this effect was taken at the meeting of TTD Trust Board on June 19. Subba Reddy said though the Trust Board wanted to construct 500 temples with the help of Samarsta Foundation and the Endowments Department in the last two years, works could not be taken up due to lockdown. However, the construction of temples in SC and ST colonies and fishermen’s hamlets will be completed in the next one year, The New Indian Express Reported.
