NELLORE: The TTD Trust Board has decided to allow VIP break darshan at 8 am from December 1. Hitherto, the darshan used to start at 5.30 am.

According to officials, the board took this decision so that more number of common devotees could have earlier darshan of Lord Venkateswara. The TTD has also decided to henceforth issue Srivani tickets in off-line mode only in Tirupati. Srivani ticket holders will be able to book accommodation in Madhavam Rest House subject to availability.

Madhavam counter for issuing offline tickets for Srivani will, however, be opened on November 30 at 10 am. The board has requested devotees to know about these changes and book their darshan and accommodation accordingly.
