Pakistan’s conditions for Kartarpur Corridor: Only 500 Pilgrims To Be Allowed Per Day

Not more than 500 Sikh pilgrims will be allowed per day through the Kartarpur Corridor, which is considered as a pathbreaking initiative in bridging the diplomatic ties between India and Pakistan, but the pilgrims will be subjected to several terms and conditions including creation of a database which contains information about their names, travel history and other relevant information.

Pakistan will send the draft agreement to the Indian Government for signing the mutual agreement before the Corridor is thrown open to pilgrims.

Pakistan government has also said that a three -day prior information of the visiting pilgrims and security clearance by the Indian side will be needed before the entry of Sikh pilgrims through the planned Kartarpur Corridor.
Entry to Pakistani soil will be facilitated only with a permit and passport is mandatory, though the pilgrimage would be visa-free.

the agreement also proposes establishment of infrastructure on the both sides, including facilitation centres and counters for running security check and issuance of permits for the facilitation of the pilgrims.

On November 28, Pakistan Prime Minister laid the foundation stone of the Kartarpur Corridor along the India-Pakistan border.
