Tirupati: In recognition to its qualitative services, the TTD Pilgrim Complex, Vishnu Nivasam, located in the heart of the temple city of Tirupati, won the certificate of International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
This certificate was presented to TTD Executive Officer Anil Kumar Singhal by ISO Director Karthikeyan in the former's chamber in TTD Administrative Building in Tirupati on Thursday.
The ISO Director appreciated the efforts put up by TTD in providing qualitative services to devotees maintaining all standard parameters in spite of the visit of multitude of pilgrims daily from across the country.
Later Tirupati JEO B Lakshmikantham said the ISO team made three visits to Vishnu Nivasam in the last 20 days. During their first visit they have offered their inputs, directions and the non-negotiable parameters, while in their second visit they did mid-term evaluation and finally they made a surprise visit to check whether the TTD has been following all the standard parameters or not at Vishnu Nivasam.
During a brief session with a select senior officers of TTD in Conference Hall in TTD Administrative Building in Tirupati here on Thursday, he said, ISO certification implies that the TTD is following high standards in the maintenance of its pilgrim amenities complexes and rest houses.

This should be an inspiration to all the other departments and especially the hospitals and educational institutions of TTD to provide quality services to patients and pupils respectively, he maintained.
