The gold-plating of Ananda Nilayam, which was planned to begin in February, has been postponed. TTD has decided to go for global tenders for time-bound completion of the gold-plating works to avoid inconvenience to the pilgrims, said Chairman YV Subba Reddy.

Speaking to media persons along with TTD EO AV Dharma Reddy and JEO Veerabrahmam at Annamaiah Bhavan in Tirumala on Friday, the Chairman said that the gold-plating work taken up in Govindaraja Swamy Temple, which had been given to a local contractor, had been going on for the past two years.

“But in Tirumala, the works should be completed within the specific time schedule as the temple is being visited by lakhs of devotees. So we are contemplating seeking global tenders. As such we will come up with some other date after five or six months and ensure that the works are completed in time to avoid inconvenience to the pilgrims,” he said.

TTD is all set for the one-day Brahmotsavam or Radha Sapthami on Saturday, said the Chairman.

The rituals will commence at 5.30 am with Suryaprabha Vahanam and conclude at 9 pm with Chandraprabha Vahanam on Saturday. All the departments including Health and Vigilance have made arrangements to ensure that the visiting pilgrims have a hassle-free darshan of vahana sevas in the four mada streets.
