Registrations have opened on 01 Mar 2017 simultaneously for both the Baltal and Chandanwari (Pahalgam) routes. As per the rules, no pilgrim is allowed to proceed on the journey without a Registration Card or Permit. It is now essential for the applicant pilgrim to submit Compulsory Health Certificate while seeking registration for this year’s Amarnath Yatra.

Considering the present carrying capacity of the tracks, available infrastructure in the Yatra area and all other relevant considerations the Board decided that, excluding Yatris who would travel by heli-copters on either route to Panjtarni, 7500 pilgrims would be allowed to register for Yatra 2017 on per day per route basis.
