The VIP break darshan facility at
Tirumala temple, which mostly caters to the high and mighty, will soon be available for common devotees. The Tirumala
Devasthanams (TTD) plans to launch a new scheme that will allow common devotees to get the ‘VIP’ privilege.
The temple administration is planning to link the donations offered to the newlyfloated Srivani Trust with VIP break darshan which will bring the common devotees under the ambit of
VIP darshan . The Sri Venkateswara Alaya Nirmanam trust (Srivani trust) was recently floated for preservation and construction of Lord Venkateswara temples across the country.
With the TTD having already introduced a simplified break darshan system, it is now focusing on making the common devotees experience the privilege too. As per the new scheme, any devotee who donates ₹10,000 to the Srivani Trust would be issued a VIP darshan ticket.
As of now, devotees wishing to avail the facility have to get recommendation letters from influential persons (political leaders, top government officials etc). The TTD’s joint executive officer in Tirumala has been vested with the discretionary powers to scrutinise the letters and issue VIP darshan tickets to the devotees.
Though VIP break darshan tickets are priced at a modest ₹500 (per ticket), many devotees, despite willing to pay the amount, fail to get the limited tickets as most of them go to influential persons or those with recommendation letters. People also often fall victim to touts by coughing up to ₹₹10,000 for a single ticket. .
