The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has appealed to its devotees on Tuesday to avoid single-use plastic.
In an effort to reduce pollution and preserve the environment of the holy hills, TTD took the initiative with the aim to go plastic-free in two months.
According to local media reports, TTD senior officials ordered all the departments to impose a complete prohibition of plastic use in Tirumala.
The current ban comes into effect a year after the administration stopped selling mineral plastic bottles.
The official also called upon hotels and other business owners to follow proper precautions and maintain a healthy setting for all visitors.
