In the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams(TTD), 1,300 CCTV cameras were installed to step up security in the temple environment.
In June 2020, TTD had started using the eZy Distance Calculator to ensure social distancing. Around 20 CCTV cameras are linked with the application; the software would be loaded into the surveillance system, which would calculate and alert so that the officials could manage the crowd and ensure social distance maintenance among individuals amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The software detects the spots where there is overcrowding and alerts officials in case of any deviations. With 1,300 CCTV cameras installed at all strategic locations in Tirumala, the TTD can regulate devotees' flow.
The TTD trust board chairman YV Subba Reddy said it approved the annual budget for 2020-21 after a board meeting. He also noted that ₹ 20 crores were fixed to install 1,300 CC cameras in Tirumala in the third phase through the allocated tenders.
