A total of 44,951 pilgrims traveled through the Kartarpur corridor to pay homage to Pakistani Sri Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara, the final resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev. This was announced to Lok Sabha on Tuesday.
Union Secretary of State G Kishan Reddy said a state-of-the-art, integrated passenger terminal building in Dera Baba Nanak and a four-lane national road (NH-354B) were built by Dera Baba Nanak to the international border. Pilgrims can go on pilgrimage easily and easily throughout the year.
A total of 44,951 pilgrims traveled the Kartarpur Corridor from November 9, 2019 to January 31, 2020 to worship Sri Kartarpur Sahib, he said in a written response to a question.
Furthermore, Reddy said, pilgrims' passports are not stamped by immigration officials, and the Indian government has repeatedly asked the Pakistani government not to charge or pay pilgrims.
Pakistan charges USD 20 for each pilgrim who visits Kartarpur Sahib.
