India has also sent an invitation to Pakistan for a meeting on October 23, 2019, to discuss details about the inauguration. Pakistan is yet to respond to the Indian invite.

India will also raise the $20 fee (about Rs 1,500) which Pakistan proposes to levy from Indian pilgrims visiting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur. India has already expressed disappointment over the $20 fee and asked Pakistan to withdraw the same although there has been no response from the latter.


According to the External Affairs Ministry, the Centre wants to operationalise Kartarpur corridor before November 12, the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, as the pilgrims have been demanding visa-free access to Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib.

Kartarpur Sahib on the right bank of the Ravi River is a holy centre for Sikhs and was established in 1522 by Guru Nanak Dev. Kartarpur corridor will be the first visa-free passage between the two neighbours.

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu laid the foundation stone for Kartarpur corridor on November 26, 2018, at Mann village in Gurdaspur district while the Pakistani side did the same two days later. The opening of Kartarpur border was first discussed in 1998 during the tenure of prime ministers Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Nawaz Sharif.
