For the VIPs, Higher officials, and the devotees with recommendation letters, laddus are being offered daily these are not offered to the common devotees.

As the production of cost has increased in a large way, TTD has decided to double the price of additional laddus from today, Friday, 22nd December.

Accordingly, the ordinary laddu price is up from Rs. 25 to Rs. 50. The price of Kalyana Utsava laddu is up from Rs. 100 to Rs. 200 and the price of vada are up from Rs. 25 to Rs. 100.

However, no changes have been in the price of laddus offered to the devotees.
