Dera Baba Nanak (Gurdaspur), November 16

With the decks having been cleared for the reopening of the 4.6 km-long Kartarpur hall, the net registration course of will start from Wednesday, whereas the primary devotee will cross over two days later.

The passage is being thrown open to the general public after a 20-month hiatus, starting from March 23 final 12 months following the outbreak of Covid.

The passage connects Dera Baba Nanak with the shrine in Pakistan. The reopening will coincide with the delivery anniversary celebrations of the Guru Nanak Dev.

The choice was welcomed by CM Charanjit Singh Channi and Dy CM Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa. The CM was at Dharowali, the native village of Randhawa, barely 10 km from the hall, when he obtained the news.

Groups of the Bureau of Immigration and the Customs division have already reached the Built-in Verify Put up (ICP). Hectic exercise was seen as we speak in and across the ICP, the place all immigration and safety actions happen earlier than devotees are allowed entry to the hall. The choice comes practically two years after the passage was devoted to the general public by PM Narendra Modi on November 19, 2019.

The passage has been designed to allow 5,000 pilgrims to move daily. Nonetheless, this determine was by no means touched, not to mention being surpassed following safety restrictions. There have been days when the determine dropped to only 90-100. The low turnout was attributed to the precondition that devotees ought to possess passports. Though a visa isn’t stamped on the passport, its particulars are uploaded onto the immigration software program programs of each India and Pakistan.

All circumstances that had been prevalent earlier than March 23, 2020, stay in place. These embody the requirement of a passport. The hall’s safety, like earlier, will likely be sorted by the BSF, Military, CISF and Batala police.
