People belonging to various faiths other than Hinduism visiting the Venkateswara temple here have to mandatorily sign on a declaration form stating they have faith in the presiding deity.

Triplicate form

This rule will come into force from August 13, TTD Joint Executive Officer K.S. Srinivasa Raju said on Tuesday.

For the convenience of the visitors, the triplicate form would be made available not only in the Vaikuntam queue complex but also at the JEO, Peishkar and all sub-enquiry offices here.

While one copy would be given back to the visitor, the other two would be retained by the management for its administrative purpose.
