Dehradun: Badrinath Kedarnath Temple Committee (BKTC), which overlooks the maintenance of the two temples, has scrapped the provisions of special VIP puja inside the centuries-old shrines, officials said Saturday.

The decision to the effect was taken by the board of the temple committee at New Tehri yesterday.

"Now VIPs would also have to stand in queues for having darshans of both Badrinath and Kedarnath temples," Anusuiya Prasad Bhatt, chairman of the BKTC, said.

The two temples, among the most revered pilgrimage centres, in Uttarakhand's Garhwal region receive thousands of pilgrims every year.
