JEO KS Sreenivasa Raju appeals to pilgrims to utilize Slotted Sarva Darshan (SSD) system that was introduced with a noble aim to reduce long waiting hours in queue and compartments.
“Now the pilgrims, instead of waiting long hours in serpentine queue lines and compartments, can visit the other holy places in and around Tirupati, Tirumala and can have darshan of Lord Venkateswara in the specified time slot on the token. With this system we have not reduced darshan hours but only minimised the woes of pilgrims waiting for nearly 20-24hours in queue lines and compartments. The devotees can procure these free darshan tokens at Tirupati, Tirumala and also in footpath routes. To get this token each member of the family should bring their Aadhaar card. If they do not possess Aadhaar card, then they can get the darshan token of their choice slot with Voter ID card”, he informed.
