Two laddus Or only One?

LADDU 2The TTD  is likely to get rid of the mounting subsidy on the laddus, making them costlier. Now the TTD gives two laddus to the devotees of general category at Rs.10 each. Hence the TTD is toying with the idea of giving only one laddu or remove the subsidy. The manufacturing cost of a laddu weighing 175 gms is Rs.33 to Rs.35 and TTD fixed its price at Rs.10 as a result which the annual loss is Rs.30 crores. The TTD also gives one laddu free of cost to the devotees who come by walk through Alipiri and Srivari mettu which incur an additional loss of Rs.20 crores. Devotees on Rs.50 sudarsanam, Rs. 300 special darshan and Rs. 500 VIP break darshan are also given two laddus Rs.10 each. Additional laddus are charged at Rs.25 each. The TTD may do away with this also. However one subsidy laddu at Rs. 10 may continue. The TTD may shortly take a decision on it in its meeting.
