KONDAVEETI SEVA SADAN (CHOULTRY):
It is well known that Reddys are closely connected to the sacred centre of Srisailam from time immemorial. In order to fulfill the need for a Choultry in this sacred we acquired two acres of land in 1982 from Srisailam Devasthanam and taken up construction of Choultry. There has been a tremendous response from all over the country. With their help and cooperation, in a record time we have reached a stage to receive complements from one and all for the services rendered to pilgrims. For comfortable stay of pilgrims, we have the following well-furnished modern facilities in our Choultry complex and Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy Nilayam (Old Age Home Complex)
Alampur: Located on the bank of the river Tungabhadra in Mahaboobnagar District in the west where Navabrahma Alayas – A group of nine temples of Chalukya period are situated. This Kshetram is also the seat of Goddess Jogulamba, one of the Eighteen Mahasakthis.

FREE BOARDING FACILITIES:
Although there are many choultries in Srisailam, very few were offering daily free boarding until a decade ago. Under such circumferences, with the encouragement of thousands of philanthropic brothers we had daily free boarding program in 1998 to cater to the needs of pilgrims, saints, ascetics, beggars, Sivadeeksha devotees ad social service oriented people. Today, we are able to satisfy the needs of about 5,00,000 pilgrims a year. In the wake of ever growing rush of pilgrims, there is a need to pool up more corpus amount. Hence, we hope to have continued support, cooperation and generous help from all, in future also.
SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTS:
Our association has been extending financial help to the deserving poor students from the very inception.
Scholarships for meritorious and poor students in general and also financial help to the students of the specified educational institutions as chosen by the donors on merit/other grounds are being given to an extent of Rs5 Lakhs a year.
HOME FOR AGED (Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy Nilayam):
In the wake of industrialization, globalization and rapid changes in the life styles of people, there is a large scale migration o\to the cities and foreign nations. Because of this, the joint family system is crumbling and emotional attachments and relationships among family members are declining. For common man, taking care of parents appears to be a burden. Even among economically well off families, it is common to see the miserable fate and ill treatment meted out to the old people due to the influence of modernization. In order to help such people by extending love and affection in the eve of their lives, on behalf of our association we have been running an “Old Age Home” from 1999 onwards. The present capacity of the home is 150 and now the demand is outwitting.
NATURAL CALAMITIES – HELP TO THE VICTIMS:
It is not uncommon to see natural disorders leading to disaster and miserable conditions to many people. In such circumstances, our association is extending help either directly or through the Government.
YOGI VEMANA PEETHAM:
Location: Kataripalli Village, Anantapur Dist, AP Yogi Vemana is a great philosopher who tried to establish casteless and egalitarian society through his preaching’s about 400 years ago. In the present society, his preaching’s still relevant and essential. Yogi Vemana Peetham has been established in our Choultry at Srisailam in order to propagate his philosophy through publication of Vemana’s teachings. The existing temple near the Samadhi of Yogi-Vemana at Kataripalli Village, Anantapur Dist, AP., was in a dilapidated condition. This organization has initiated to renovate the temple and develop a memoriam for this great Yogi. Now A.P Tourism Corporation has taken up in a big way and constructed Vemana memorial complex at at estimated cost of Rs 2.5 Crores and developed into pilgrim / tourist centre.
SCHOOL AND VOCATIONAL TRINING CENTRE:
Location: Chinna Dornala village, Prakasham Dist, A.P.
From time immemorial we have been depending on agriculture for livelihood. Due to increase in population, holdings have been divided and it has become very difficult for small families to survive with these small holdings. In the changed socio-economic scenario, the Government is also not able to provide jobs to educated people as in the past, resulting in unemployment and have become burden upon their families and society at large.
Although there are many vocational institutions in the country, these are confined to financially sound and educated people only. Many others without financial resources and educational qualifications are deprived of the opportunities for such training. It is therefore a vocational training centre is established in Chinna Dornala village, Prakasham Dist to train the poor in the rural sector where from we get necessary support.
The organization is running and maintaining the following student hostels at Hyderabad.
Girls Hostel: Uppal, Hyderabad
Gents Hostel: Champapet, Hyderabad
REDDY BHAVAN – CENTRAL OFFICE

As numerous Reddy Welfare Organizations are coming up at every place, it was thought necessary to bring them together under a banner of a federation to consolidate and bring together to realize the desired goals.
This organization has taken up the cause of persuasion with various organizations and formed a federation viz., “Reddy Sangala Smakhya” with the head quarters at Hyderabad. Now, with a generous gift of 1200 Sq Yards of land in Kharmanghat, Hyderabad which may cost around Rs 1 Crore by Jitta Yadava Reddy, a central office building for Reddy Organizations is being built by this organization at an estimate cost of around 1.50 Crores. The building is named after the donor “Jitta Yadava Reddy – Reddy Bhavanam”. Part of the building is nearing completion and the same will be shortly dedicated to the service of the member organizations.
