Arjita Seva tickets: TTD mulling ‘dip system’
Tirumala , Oct 29 :
TIRUMALA: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams has decided to introduce ‘two-time dip system’ to allot Arjita Seva tickets for Abhishekam, Vastram, Archana and others which are added to the current booking due to cancellation of bulk booking of tickets in the Arjitam ticket booking scam.
Manipulation by a section of people including some staff members working at the Arjitam office led to the cancellation of the bulk booking of Arjitam tickets which are being released now in a phased manner every month through current booking.
Joint executive officer (Tirumala) KS Srinivasa Raju told reporters here on Friday that for November 328 tickets were added to the current booking and these tickets would be allotted to pilgrims who enrolled their name by giving their thumb impressions up to 5 pm. After the deadline, the tickets will be allotted by a dip system
