TTD Room Allotment New Procedure:
New allotment counters were set up at Padala Mandapam and Tollgate at Alipiri and also at Srivari Mettu. TTD is planning to decentralize the existing CRO room allotment procedure for the convenience of devotees.
Usually, the booking receipt will be scanned at the CRO office and the Room allotment will be done at the Sub enquiry office and is causing long waiting hours.
With the new rules in place, the devotees can now scan the online booking receipt at the scanning counters available at Alipiri toll gate (for vehicles), Srivari Mettu and Padala Mandapam Alipiri (Steps path).
After scanning the online receipts the devotees will receive cottage details ie the sub enquiry office and they have to go on their registered mobile numbers so that devotees can directly visit and get rooms without wasting time at CRO.
Srivari Seva including Parakamani, Laddu Prasadam, etc. apart from General Srivari Seva were stopped temporarily.
Those who booked the slots for April, May and June are requested to make note of this change and to postpone their journey.
