  1. ok thank you for your information. I think from 1st june we can travel (if anybody wants) hassle free.
  2. In 1 week span twice you traveled HYD-AP-HYD, correct !!! No body questioned your Quarantine stamp on your hand ?? Are they providing pass only emergency or any other reason ?? I came to know that if you have any emergency or valid reason than only they are allowing to cross the border. Asking you out of my curiosity.

    FASTAG.. Mandatory or Optional

    Guys, I would like to know the implementation of FASTAG as Mandatory or Optional. I think there is no such GO passed that FASTAG is Mandatory (still trying to figure out some concrete information). Per my opinion it should be an optional, you can take FASTAG and pass through that lanes or you can pay by cash and go through non- FASTAG lanes. Government is announcing to be as Mandatory but seems no proper implementation in this regard. Even in USA you will see both options in all Toll plaza (Cash/Cashless). Above said is just my thought/opinion/assumption and would like to know concrete information regarding the same, please share from your perspective.

    Hyderabad to Tirupati

    There are some mixed opinions from hyd to tirupati route, Option-1 - LB nagar - nalgonda - addanki - NH-16 - nellore - srikalahasti - tirupati Option-2 - Gachibowli - kurnool - kadapa - tirupati It all depends upon the start point from hyderabad and also if you want to visit srikalahasti temple. Again no clear clarity on completion of proposed highway kurnool - kadapa, but what I got the information is that almost completed. The only issue you may face is between kadapa to tirupati, this stretch is not a highway and you may not feel comfortable. Even I am planning to travel tirupati 29th Nov. Gachibowli - Nalgonda - addanki - NH-16 - nellore - srikalahasti - tirupati Day1 - 29th Nov - Srikalahasti temple darshan Day2 - 30th Nov - Padmavathi amma varu and local temple Day3 - 1st Dec - reach Tirumula, special darshan (300/-) Day4 - 2nd Dec - Suprabhatam seva and vasanthotsavam seva Day5 - 3rd Dec - Return journey Tirupati - vontimitta (temple darshan) - kadapa - yaganti - kurnool - gachibowli All seva tickets and accommodation (tirumala) tickets are booked except tirupati, I need to try in vishnu nivasam current accommodation if not search good hotel nearby. Any suggestion, please..... Thank you, Raj
