All Arrangements Finalized

The holy Amarnath yatra is all set to resume after 3-years. The Jammu and Kashmir administration has made all the preparations for the pilgrimage set to commence on June 30.
This year authorities are expecting five to eight lakh pilgrims to arrive and pay obeisance at the holy cave shrine nestled in Himalayas.
The yatra remained suspended for 2-years i.e. 2020 and 2021 due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and it was cut short in 2019 when the Article 370 was scrapped.
This year’s pilgrimage would be a mega event. The Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) has finalized the preparations while the J&K Government is working hard to plug in the loopholes. Strict security arrangements have been put in place to keep terrorists at bay. Foolproof security arrangements have been put in place along both the Pahalgam and Baltal routes leading to the holy cave. At Baltal base camp, a 70-bed fully-equipped DRDO hospital had been set up for quality healthcare services to the pilgrims. The hospital has X-ray and ultrasound facilities, general and oxygenated wards, OPD, ICU, pharmacy and a laboratory. As many as 109 Basic Life Support ambulances and 26 Advance Life Support critical care ambulances have been placed at 55 locations en route Baltal and Chandanwari routes from Qazigund for the pilgrims. This year special focus is being laid on cleanliness and the board aims for a “Swachh Amarnath Yatra”. Provisions have been made for toilets all along the routes.
To ensure only bona-fide pilgrims are present at the yatra, the SASB has asked all intending pilgrims to carry Aadhar cards or any other biometric verified document with them.
Jammu and Kashmir is awaiting the pilgrims eagerly as the people had been missing the yatris for the past two years. In Jammu also special arrangements have been put in place for pilgrims. The security has been beefed up in the areas where pilgrims will be staying before proceeding to Kashmir. Langars have been set up from Lakhanpur to the holy cave. The makeshift accommodations have been created for pilgrims in all the districts of Jammu region in case the yatra gets halted due to rough weather or any other reason. All the arrangements are in place to facilitate the annual pilgrimage smoothly.
