Tirupati told to pay devotee Rs 50 lakh for 14-year wait | India News

TIRUPATI: A consumer court in Salem directed Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) to facilitate “Vosystemankara seva” or pay Rs 50 lakh to a devotee for a year for making him wait for special puja for 14 years. The temple closed in March 2020 for 80 days after the outbreak Covid and the behavior of all Arjitha seva was stopped, including V addressankara.
TTD then sent out a statement to the KR . devotees Hari Bhaskar ask him to book any desired slot during daily VIP break or ask for a refund. But Bhaskar asked the temple authority to reschedule his birth in V Cadastre to any other date convenient for them, even a year later. TTD authorities made it clear that it would not be possible to reschedule seva and again asked him to seek a refund. Bhaskar transferred the county’s consumer dispute resolution commission and filed a complaint against TTD.
The Consumer Commission has directed TTD to allocate Vectorsankara seva to devotees within one year or pay Rs 50 lakh as compensation for the shortfall in service and for causing mental suffering to the devotee and his family. It asks the temple authority to refund the reservation amount of Rs 12,250 to Bhaskar along with 24% interest per annum from 2006 till present.
This is the first time a believer has approached consumer court against TTD for shortfalls in service since its inception nearly nine decades ago.
