The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams is making elaborate arrangements to meet the requirements of the pilgrims visiting the temple on the eve of New Year.
According to sources, the TTD will allow VIPs for the darshan of Lord Venkateswara Swamy from 1.30am while the general public will be permitted from 4am.
Those VIPs that fall under the protocol category will be provided with six VIP darshan tickets each, MPs, MLAs, MLCs and higher officials will be given four tickets each. The management has decided to reduce the discretionary quota and entertain only those VIPs coming in person.
It has been decided to dispense with other privileged forms of darshan like that of being extended to the special and senior citizens and the parents with infants on both December 31 and January 1.
