TTD to reduce Tirumala Tirupati Venkateshwara swamy darshan to once in a year for each devotee

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) plans to implement a new procedure of allowing each devotee only once in a year to have Sri Venkateshwara swamy darshan. The officials told that it is a part of cutting overcrowd of devotees. Now, on an average more than 70,000 devotees are visiting the Lord Balaji per day and it may go up to 1 lakh per day in next three years.

A biometric system will record fingerprints and photographs of devotees and the system will not allow the devotee second time in the year.

    It should apply to all croocked politicians and high profile guests. These people take advantage of their positions as VVIPS and create hassles to the common man.

    A VERY APPRAPRIATE DECISION .NOW YOU SHOULD ALLOW DEVOTIIES UP TO THE FOOT OF GOD .AND GIVE A CLOSE AND GOOD DARSHAN.LIKE OLD DAYS.THE ACTUAL RESULTS WILL START COMING ONLY AFTER ONE YEAR FROM THE DATE OF IMPLIMENTING.AFTER SAY TEN YEARS YOU CAN CHANGE TO 18 MONTHS AND SO ON
    NEXT STEP SHOULD BE CONSTRUCT A VERY HUGE VENKATESWARA SWAMY TEMPLE ON THE HILLS BY THE SIDE OF PRESENT TEMPLE WITH ALL MODERN FECILITIES LIKE MOVING PLAT FORMS AND CENTRAL AIR CONDIONING ETC.THIS SHOULD COMPLETE BEFORE ONE YEAR SO THAT THE RESTRICTION OF YEARLY DARSHAN WILLNOT EFFECT MUCH.JUST LIKE PURI JAGANNATH TEMPLE PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO ENTER THE GHARBHALAYAM FROM ALL DIRECTIONS,AND CAN LEAVE.ALL THE BEST MARBLE AND GOLD CAN BE USED TO MAKE THE TEMPLE VERY VERY ATTRACTIVE.WHAT WE ARE NOT ABLE TO DO NOW AT THIS TEMPLE WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO AT THE NEWLY CONSTRUCTED TEMPLE.
    FAINALLY ALL DONATIONS SHOULD COME VIA HUNDI ONLY WITH OUT ANY NAME TAGS AND EXTRA FECILITIES ATTACHED TO THE DONORS.ALL ARE EQUAL BEFORE THE GOD
    ALL THE SATRAMS, GUEST HOUSES ,OFFICES AND ANY OTHER CONSTRUCTION AT TIRUMALA SHOULD HAVE A MINI TEMPLE OF LORD VENKATESWARA WITH HUNDI FECILITY .
