Attari: India and Pakistan on Thursday signed the agreement for Kartarpur Corridor, paving the way for its inauguration next month ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.
Both countries met on “zero line” on the border and signed the agreement. The Indian delegation was led by SCL Das, Joint Secretary (Internal Security) in the Home Ministry and the Pakistani delegation by its Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Mohammed Faisal.
The corridor will provide visa-free movement of Indian pilgrims, who will have to just obtain a permit to visit Kartapur Sahib, which was established in 1522 by Sikh faith founder Guru Nanak Dev.
The corridor provides a link to connect the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab’s Gurdaspur with Darbar Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan. Both countries will hold events to mark the opening of their sections of the corridor.
