dress code at tirupathi?

Hi

I heard that tirupathi trust will not allow people for darshan in western dresses?

…oneindia.in/2012/02/05/tirupati-western-ban…

Has it been implemented? Can someone who has visited tirupathi recently throw more light on it? I'm going there next weekend (25-26th Feb)

Traditional dress code will be better at temples.
