In a significant move, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) board chairman YV Subba Reddy today announced that soon the VVIPs darshan slots popularly known as L1, L2, L3 will be discontinued to give more preference to common pilgrims.  

It had become a big task for TTD to give preference for vvips to facilitate quick darshan of Lord Balaji over common pilgrims who have to wait for hours together for the same Lord darshan.

"I have been maintaining since day one of assuming charge that in line with our Chief Miniter YS Jagan Mohan Reddy directive that there should be transparency in every sphere, I have decided to bring the same in TTD.
