The online registration of pilgrims for Shri Amarnathji Yatra 2021 is going to commence on 15th April 2021 for both the Baltal and Chandanwari routes.
This year’s 56 day Yatra shall commence simultaneously on both the routes from 28th June and culminate on Raksha Bandhan on 22nd August 2021. CEO, Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, Nitishwar Kumar has informed that the intended yatri shall visit the URL: www.jksasb.nic.in and click on REGISTER.
They will then be guided for the steps to be followed and will have to fill up details in the online application form and attach photograph and the Compulsory Health Certificate (CHC).
Worth to mention, for ensuring against fraudulent health certificates, only such certificates which are issued by doctors/Medical Institutes authorized by the concerned State Government/UT Administrations shall be accepted for the online registration and only those health certificates which have been issued after 15th March 2021 shall be valid.
The steps which yatris need to follow for online registration for the Yatra, have been put on the Board’s website www.shriamarnathjishrine.com. The yatris shall be able to download the Yatra Permits after their applications have been duly processed and will have to carry their original Photo ID and CHC with them during the yatra.
In the wake of effective security arrangements along the difficult tracks, only those yatris who are in possession of a Yatra Permit which is valid for a specified date and route, will be allowed to proceed beyond the Base Camps, and cross the entry gates at Domel and Chandanwari.
Pertinently, persons under the age of 13 or above the age of 75 years and ladies who are more than six weeks pregnant would not be registered for this year’s yatra. The yatris who propose to travel by helicopter do not require registration as their helicopter tickets shall suffice for this purpose.
However, they shall be required to produce a Compulsory Health Certificate, (CHC) in prescribed format issued by an authorized doctor, before they are allowed to travel by helicopter.
