Tirupati laddoos are a must-have when one goes for darshan, and many even get them as prasad when their friends and family visit the holiest temple for Hindus. There have been occasions when the quality of laddoos was questioned, but now the Tirumala administrators are taking various steps to keep them fresh and tasty. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has come up with eco-friendly biodegradable bags for laddoos at Tirumala temple.


A sales counter was opened at Tirumala by DRDO chairman Satish Reddy along with Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) executive officer Dr. KS Jawahar Reddy and additional EO AV Dharma Reddy. Speaking to the media on the occasion, the DRDO chairman shared that the Advanced Systems Laboratory of DRDO in Hyderabad has been doing a lot of R&D and inventing ways to find the best eco-friendly replacement for plastic bags.


In order to minimize single-use plastic, DRDO has come up with bags made of starch of corn which degrade naturally within 90 days and are not harmful to cattle too. The bags for Tirumala were made after rigorous testing and research of the formula. The DRDO chairman pointed out that regular plastic takes about 200 years to degrade and is made from toxic petrochemicals. In contrast, corn starch bags are a sustainable, cost-effective, and ocean-safe alternative to conventional plastic bags. 


Meanwhile, TTD EO added that such measures were vital for human survival and said that after testing the response from the pilgrims, they would be commencing full-fledged sales soon. 


Just recently, TTD had conducted the ‘Dosha Nivarana’ puja wherein the priests sought forgiveness symbolically from the deity.
