TTD did not increase the darshan quota even in January in the wake of the Omicron threat looming. 2 lakh 60 thousand tokens were released online at 9 am this morning at a rate of 10 thousand per day. Devotees booked all the tokens in just 15 minutes. Devotees who are unaware that the token quota has been completed are still trying for thousands of tickets.
Devotees flock to Thirumala Srivastava on Vaikuntha Ekadashi in the month of January. As the Vaikuntha gates of the Srivari temple will not be open for 10 days, the locals will have to visit the Vaikuntha Dwara. From the 13th to the 22nd of this month, TTD regularly issued only 5,000 tokens. TTD has not yet announced when the rest of the tokens will be released. Devotees are hopeful that the tokens will not be found as the quota will be restricted to locals or allotted to all devotees.
