A call center will be soon started in Sabarimala Pilgrimage in the District by Travancore Devaswom Board which will provide better facilities to pilgrims coming from outside Kerala, Devaswom Commissioner P. Venugopal has said.

Mr. Venugopal said here on Wednesday that devotees could get information regarding Sabarimala and the pilgrimage through the call centre.

The centre would provide the latest information on the crowd situation, offerings to the presiding deity, accommodation, and train timings. People would get information in their own mother tongue, and preliminary steps had been initiated for launching it at the earliest.

The commissioner said the TDB would install response boxes at the Sannidhanam to know the responses of the pilgrims. He said the Aravana stock had crossed 25 lakh cans (250 ml each), besides 3.5 lakh Appam as on Wednesday. The TDB had tried its best to make the administration corruption-free by computerizing the offices at Pampa and Sabarimala, he said.

Mr. Venugopal said almost 80 per cent of the problems arising out of lack of proper waste disposal system would be solved by 2015 when the proposed modern sewage treatment plant with a capacity to treat five million litres of waste a day was completed.

Sabarimala has been declared a plastic-free zone and hence devotees should take extra care to avoid plastic covers for carrying items in the Irumudikkettu, he said.
