Additional quota for Yatra on-line registration released
Srinagar, June 22 (Scoop News) –N. N. Vohra, Governor who is also Chairman of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board reviewed the to-date status of the registration process and the ongoing arrangements for the forthcoming Shri Amarnathji Yatra in a meeting at Raj Bhavan today. Recognizing that on-line registration through the website of J&K Bank Ltd. has been most favoured and found convenient by the pilgrims, it was decided to release additional quota for registration through the J&K Bank website for the convenience of the pilgrims who had not so far secured Registration.
Giving details, Navin K. Choudhary, CEO, explained that the additional on-line Registration quota has been released in order to ensure that all intending pilgrims reach the Base Camp only after having registered themselves. The CEO further said that more than 3.5 lakh pilgrims have already registered till date through the branches of J&K Bank, YES Bank and 102 Post Offices in addition to on-line registration through the website of J&K Bank. He clarified that the registration process through Bank branches and Post Offices is still going on at several places.
The CEO reiterated the Board’s appeal to the Yatris not to reach the Base Camps without registration as, unlike in previous years, it will not be possible for them to be able to cross the Entry-cum-Security Gates at Baltal and Nunwan Base Camps without the Registration in their hand. He further appealed to the Yatris to reach these Base Camps only on the date and for the route for which they have registered themselves. He also reminded the Yatris that the compulsory Health Certificate introduced this year has to be produced by all those Yatris who have registered themselves on-line or are traveling by helicopter. The Yatris who have bought helicopter tickets, their heli ticket will be considered as registration but they would not be allowed to board if they do not produce the required health certificate, duly signed and stamped by registered Medical Practitioner.
