After the substantial decline in Covid cases, the CCC was disbanded and the complex was handed back to TTD.

Ahead of the resumption of rooms allotment in the pilgrim complex near Railway station, TTD Joint Executive Officer (JEO) Sada Bhargavi inspected the complex on Thursday for providing required instructions to the staff to keep the reception centres and rooms ready for pilgrims' accommodation which again start from Saturday.
