Thousands of people face a unique problem when trying to reserve a Seva or accommodation through net booking – the problem is that online booking shows No Availability always. A reader of our blog, G Murali Mohana Rao, writes about this tough situation faced by numerous Balaji devotees and asks Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTDs) to take a serious note of the problem and improve the situation.

TTD can use technology for peaceful visit to TIRUMALA
Daily several thousands of devotees reach Tirumala on devotion.
TTD’s Sri Venkateshwara Bhakti channel continuously displays information to book accommodation and seva tickets in advance. Booking on internet is mere a myth. Trying to book over net any time for any seva or accommodation, the result will be –NOT AVAILABLE and practically is of no use as only a part of bookings are available on internet!
At Tirumala there are multiple reservation buildings, where in the devotees stand in serpentine queues to obtain a seva ticket and in another queue for accommodation.
Instead TTD can provide a central computerized reservation center at Tirupati and Tirumala, so that the devotees coming from long distances can sit and wait for their turn to book for a seva and accommodation.
Please do away with various reservation buildings and convert them to accommodations.
TTD authorities are requested to introduce online booking system for the devotees across the world through which they should have the facility of booking/changing/canceling the dates of the sevas /accommodation booked.
It is need less to say that devotees from various corners of the world reach with stress and strain.
Irrespective of their stamina, age and sex they are made to stand in queues. Instead TTD using part of the money offered by devotees can construct a single centralized computer reservation hall at Tirumala, Tirupati and other major places.
Please offer the devotees these facilities.
