On 2.11.16 myself and my wife  went to Tirupathi and had a nice and peaceful darshan of the deity using the above facility.The facility is really a boon to the Senior citizens and disabled persons who can avoid standing in the queues for hours together to have darshan.
The details of the facility provided by Tirumala Tirupathi Devathanams (TTD )to Senior citizens and disabled persons are given below
Free Darshan of Lord Venkateshwara for Senior Citizens and disabled persons @Tirupathi.
*Everything is free of cost*.
Age criteria 65. Husband wife allowed. Husband should be 65. Wife can be below 65. No accompanies allowed
There are two slots fixed for Senior citizen darshan. One at 10am and another at 3pm.In each slot 700 pilgrims are accommodated.
You have to produce age proof with photo ID and report  at *S 1 counter* under the bridge crossing the road from Gallery to Temple right side wall. No need to climb any steps.
As per the website you are supposed to go to the counter 2 hours in advance. But I noticed that they were allowing senior citizens till 2.30 pm for darshan at 3 pm.

  10. Today IE. 22 June 2018 We went to have Darisanam via sr citizen queue at 8:30 am.
    I am 69yrs old and my husband 73yrs old.
    There is no facility for us to sit. We stood in the queue for 1and half hour. Then we were told the 10am sr.citizen queue quota was over.
    How are the aged citizens taken care of?
    This queue also includes disabled. Shouldn't they have a separate queue?
    We had to catch the train
    So we came back without having darisanam.
