Demonetisation effect Tirupati ticket price may go up

According to report Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam's daily income was about Rs 5 crore, including interest on bank deposits. A part from the 'hundi' collections, TTD's coffers are filled by the sale of tickets, 'prasad', etc.

TTD chairman Chadalavada Krishnamurthy said, After demonetisation, we observed a dent of Rs 1-2 crore on many days. Now, we are looking at bridging the revenue gap without burdening devotees.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) chairman C Krishnamurthy said they were looking at a small hike in ticket prices at the Tirupati temple to offset the fall in revenue post-demonetisation.

TTD tickets range from Rs 50 to Rs 5,000. Most devotees buy special darshan tickets for Rs 300. At least 2,000 devotees go for VIP darshan every day, shelling out Rs 500. "The revenue gap can be bridged with a mild hike in ticket rates or Rs 5 to Rs 10 raise for various seva.
