The prominent ones which are sinking in tens of thousand of U.S. dollars in
this e-transformation process include Tirupati Tirumala
Devasthanam (TTD), Shirdi Sai Baba
Devasthanam and Khalsa Heritage,

departments. Once ready, the project will benefit pilgrims by giving them access
to information about sevaa, darshan times and will also help them make the
necessary reservations and fee payments online.
Shirdi Sai Baba Devasthanam has commissioned a networking project to automate
its key departments.
The Khalsa Heritage in Punjab and Nirankari Mission in New Delhi are setting
up what they term "immersive multimedia theatres," which will offer devotees the
latest in digital spiritual experience......
