'Preparations For Annual Amarnath Yatra Begins In Jammu And Kashmir'

In Jammu and Kashmir, the preparations for the annual Amarnath Yatra have commenced as health certificates are being arranged in ten districts of Jammu division, allowing pilgrims to initiate their journey from the specified date. A total of 112 doctors have been designated to issue Compulsory Health Certificates (CHC) from health centers across the region, a prerequisite for advance passenger registration. Shri Amarnath Shrine Board hinted at a potential commencement date for yatra as June 29. The exact date for passenger registration will be unveiled in the coming days. Traditionally, health certificates issued from March 15 onwards are considered valid for passenger registration. However, last year’s registration process commenced in mid-April. The Health Directorate Jammu has submitted the details of nominated doctors to the government, soon to be accessible on the Shrine Board’s website.
