There is also talks of deploying the drones and the black cats for the security of the devotees while enroute to the holy cave.
The latest decision is being taken as part of foolproof security arrangements to ensure an incident-free pilgrimage.
Police said that special counters have been set up at Lakhanpur, the gateway to Jammu and Kashmir bordering Punjab.
They added that all the vehicles carrying the Amarnath pilgrims will be installed with tracking chips to keep an eye on their movement.
The 60-day yatra to holy cave shrine of Amarnath in south Kashmir Himalayas is scheduled to begin on June 28.
Asserting that all necessary security arrangements have been made for the yatra this year, the IGP asked the pilgrims to visit the shrine without any fear.>
