Sub: TTD – Reception wing-I, 0/o OSD, Tirumala – Rest Houses constructed in Tirumala by Individuals / Corporate Companies / Trusts / Joint Donors under Cottage Donation Scheme – Privileges to the donor by way of allotment of room(s) in lieu of donor slips in all 365 days during their scheme period – Recommendations of the Estates Committee placed before the TTD Board – Regarding.

Ref: Recommendations of the Estates Committee in the meeting held on 18-02-2020.

NOTE:

1) The individual Rest Houses were constructed by Individual Donors / Corporate Companies I Trusts / Joint Donors under Cottage Donation Scheme in Tirumala.

2) The donors were allowed to construct individual Rest Houses under Cottage Donation Scheme in Tirumala. Under this Scheme, 54 number of individual Rest Houses have been constructed by the donors. The details of individual Rest Houses with the name of the donor, year of construction and number of rooms in each Rest House is enclosed. The privilege allowed to donors for such donations is as under:

  • a) Prior to March 2001 – The donors were allowed occupation rights for 60 days in a calendar year by allocating 60 donor slips. Each slip would entitle to occupy entire Rest House for one day. The donor has the right to occupy by self or recommend anybody for the occupation of the Rest House and utilize 60 slips in a year i.e., the Rest House can be utilized by the donor for 60 days. Only service charges are liable to be collected from the occupier.
  • b) From March 2001 – The donors were allowed occupation rights for 30 days in a calendar year by allocating 30 donor slips. Each slip would entitle to occupy the entire Rest House for one day. The donor has the right to occupy by self or recommend anybody for the occupation of the Resthouse and utilize 30 slips in a year i.e., the Rest House can be utilized by the donor for 30 days. Only service charges are liable to be collected from the occupier.

3) Some of the donors are also maintaining the Rest Houses on their own including day to day housekeeping. The Rest Houses being maintained by donors themselves are in better condition. The donors are constantly representing that the present system of allotting the entire Rest House for one slip is disadvantageous to them, as they do not occupy all rooms on one donor slip. Hence, they have been requesting for allotment of one or two rooms permanently to them and the rest of all rooms can be retained with no. In such situation, there will optimize utilization of rooms both by donors as well as TTD.

4) The representations/ requests of donors have been examined and it is found that in the majority of occasions less number of rooms are being occupied by the donors on donor slips and leaving some rooms vacant. It is disadvantageous to both donors as well as TTD because the donor is entitled to the entire Rest House for each day of occupation. The unoccupied rooms of the donor cannot be allotted by the TIO on their own unless the donor informs that he is occupying a certain number of rooms and the rest can be allotted to other pilgrims on payment. It is very difficult to have such communication and coordination with the donors to find out the number of unoccupied rooms and allot them to other pilgrims. In view of the above difficulties both for no as well as donors, the following mechanism is suggested for consideration.

  • a. The Rest House having a minimum of 6 rooms as of March 2001 having the privilege of occupation rights for 60 days in a calendar year is equivalent to the occupation of 360 room days. In this situation, it can be considered to allot 1 room permanently to the donor for the entire year and the rest of the rooms can be kept by the no for allotting to the pilgrims.
  • b. The Rest House having a minimum of 12 rooms as of March 2001 having the privilege of occupation rights for 60 days in a calendar year is equivalent to the occupation of 720 room days. In this situation, it can be considered to allot 2 rooms permanently to the donor for the entire year and the rest of the rooms can be kept by the TTD for allotting to the pilgrims.
  • c. The Rest House having minimum 12 rooms after March 2001 having the privilege of occupation rights for 30 days in a calendar year is equivalent to the occupation of 360 room days. In this situation, it can be considered to allot 1 room permanently to the donor for entire year and the rest of the rooms can be kept by the no for allotting to the pilgrims.
  • d. The above formula can be applied for the Rest Houses having more than 12 rooms to allocate the number of rooms on a permanent basis.

5) The following further Terms and Conditions to be placed in the Revised Scheme of Privileges.

  • (i) A room may be permanently allotted to the donor and the same will not be allotted to anyone by TTD.
  • (ii) The donor can himself or his guests can occupy the room without any need to give any notice time to TTD as required in case of other Cottage Donors.
  • (iii) Such permanently allotted room/rooms are available to donors all through the year without any restriction subject to that occupancy getting recorded in the accommodation system of TTD.
