TTD Annaprasadam Trust Deposits touches Rs 1,026 Cr : EO

Tirumala, Nov 16 (UNI) Tirumala-Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Annaprasadam Trust Deposits touched a whopping of Rs 1,026 crore, its Executive Officer Anil Kumar Singhal said on Friday.
Mr Singhal complimented the impeccable services of the Annaprasadam wing of TTD and said every year millions of pilgrims are being served with free and delicious food, beverages and milk in a hygienic manner.

The Ayudha Puja was performed in a grand manner in Matrusri Tarigonda Vengamamba Annaprasadam Complex (MTVAC) here today.
The EO who took part in this puja, later speaking to media persons said, Nityannaprasadam was started in Tirumala on Aspril 6 in 1985 with just 2000 pilgrims under the instructions of then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Late N T Rama Rao.
Later in 1994, Annadanam Trust was formed and on April 1, 2014 it is been renamed as Annaprasadam Trust. Among the nine trusts and one scheme run by TTD, every day, nearly 1.5 lakh pilgrims are served free food, while 2 lakh in the week ends. During peak days like Vaikuntha Ekadasi, Radhasapthami, Garuda Seva almost four lakh servings are done. All the staffs are working day and night to reach the demand from the multitude of visiting pilgrims.

Mr Singhal also said, every day 10-12 tonnes of rice and 6-7 tonnes of vegetables are being consumed for the preparation of food and beverages in Annaprasadam wing. The day-by-day expectations from pilgrims are reaching high and the department is also doing its best to meet the expectations. I wish them to continue to work with the same spirit in future too", he maintained.
