B'lore firm to roll out Tirupati laddus

A Bangalore-based  company has conceived the device which will be operated on a pilot basis from next week.

“We aim to reduce manpower involved in transport and sale of laddu,”  says L V Subramanyam, the executive officer of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), which manages the main temple and 12 other sub temples  in Tirumala and Tirupati.

Devotees have to pay money at a counter and record  thumb impression on the bio-metric gadget to get a token to use the vending machines.

The initiative will help the TTD distribute “laddu ­pr­a­sadam” round the clock.  The TTD on an average sells  nearly one lakh “laddus” every day and the number is much high on weekends and during festivals.
