The Centre on Monday designated Dera Baba Nanak land Check post in Gurdaspur district of Punjab as an authorised immigration checkpoint to exit and entry for visiting Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan.


A notification issued by the Home ministry says all classes of passengers with valid travel documents can exit or enter through the post. 


The government also appointed the Chief Immigration Officer as the Civil Authority for the purpose, with effect from today.


On November 26 last year, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu laid the foundation stone of the Dera Baba Nanak-Kartarpur Sahib Corridor at an event at Mann village in Gurdaspur district.


On November 28, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation stone of the four-km corridor on the Pakistan side, which is expected to be completed by 2019.
