On the day of Vijayadashami, the Kurnool district is prepared for the Banni festival. According to custom, during the event, residents of Devaragattu's neighbouring villages engage in stick combat.

The chief priest of Devaragattu, Giri Swamy, claimed that people are hurt in stick fights and are misled. He has related an ancient tale of how this ritual got started long ago and how residents of Devaragattu and the surrounding places take part in this celebration.

Koteswara Rao, the Collector, and Siddharth Koushal, the SP for the Kurnool district, have also explored the custom and tried to address any controversies around it.
