New Delhi, 22nd August 2021 Sunday

The good news for Sikh pilgrims is that they have been allowed to visit the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara to celebrate the 31st death anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev. However, they will have to follow the guidelines of Coro during this journey.

The National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) on Saturday allowed Sikh pilgrims to visit Kartarpur to mark the death anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji next month.

India was placed in the C-series from 9 May to 15 August due to the Delta type of corona virus. People traveling from India to Pakistan needed special permission. However, now that the case of coro is declining, the implementation of the above provision is showing signs of slowing down.

Devotees wishing to visit Kartarpur will have to give a certificate to the authorities that they have taken both the doses of the corona vaccine as well as the report of the RTPCR test conducted in the last 3 hours.

Airports will also be tested for their rapid antigen. If the infection is detected, the traveler will not be allowed to go to Pakistan. A maximum of 500 passengers will be allowed to go to Kartarpur on this occasion.
