Earlier, Imran Khan had announced two major concessions for Indian Sikh pilgrims. He had said that Indian Sikh pilgrims will not need passports and registration done 10 days previously to visit Kartarpur. Arrangements have been made for free travel for pilgrims on the first day.

Kartarpur gurudwara is located in Pakistan’s Narowal district, around six kilometres from Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur district. The Kartarpur Corridor is located around two kilometres in Indian territory and around four kilometres in Pakistan territory.

Baba Guru Nanak Dev had spent the last years of his life in Kartarpur but after Partition, it had become very difficult for Sikh pilgrims to reach there. Seventy-two years after Partition, it has now finally become easy for Sikh pilgrims to visit the gurudwara.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Punjab’s Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and Union Minister for Urban Development Hardeep Singh Puri will be part of a group of pilgrims going from India to Kartarpur on November 9, 2019.
