In good news for the Tirupati Balaji devotees, the governing body TTD on Tuesday announced that it has reopened the Sarvadharshanam service. TTD has stated that the tokens for the free darshan will be issued from Wednesday. However, this service will only be available for devotees from the Chittoor district until further notice.
As per the announcement, free darshan tokens will be issued from 6 a.m. on Wednesday. While TTD usually issues over 8,000 tokens a day, only 2,000 tokens will be issued per day from Wednesday.
It is to the known knowledge that TTD stalled sarvadharshanam service since the COVID cases hiked in second wave. Only Rs 300 tickets are available for devotees that too in limited numbers. With criticism from all corners, TTD has opened free dharshanam service following all the COVID protocols.
