India urges Pak not to levy service fee on pilgrims to Kartarpur Corridor

AIR PIC
India and Pakistan have reached an agreement on all other issues related to Kartarpur Sahib Corridor except the matter of service fee.

Responding to media queries over the corridor, External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Raveesh Kumar said, Islamabad is insisting on levying a fee of 20 dollar on all pilgrims and New Delhi has urged the neighbouring country not to do so in the interests of devotees and also because this is a people to people initiative. 

 
The Kartarpur Sahib Corridor is an important people to people initiative taken by India to commemorate the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji. The corridor will connect Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, Pakistan, with Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district of Punjab.
