The TTD made elaborate arrangements for Vaikunta Ekadasi on January 8 and 9. It has cancelled Arjitha Seva as more number of devotees are expected for Vaikunta Ekadasi than normal days. TTD EO Dr D Sambasiva Rao has inspected the arrangements and gave suggestions. Rao said that 2.66 crore devotees have visited Tirumala and offered prayers in 2016. The TTD earned hundi income more than Rs 1,000 crore. The TTD is waiting for response from the RBI for depositing banned notes in the bank, the EO said.
