The government has increased the number of pilgrims traveling to Char Dham. Based on the report of DM of the three districts, the Devasthanam Board has taken this decision. So far, 1200 devotees were allowed to visit Badrinath daily, 800 in Kedarnath, 600 in Gangotri and 450 in Yamunotri.

The board decided to increase the number of devotees in view of the crowds in the dhams in the past weekend. When the board investigated the reasons for the arrival of devotees more than the fixed number of pilgrims, it was found that people used to pass on October 10 to 15 to visit on October 2 and 3.

On this, the board decided that the nearby investigation would be done in Haridwar, Rishikesh, Munikireti, Gauchar, Sonprayag. During this period, the pass holders with further date will be stopped there.

Ravinath Raman of the board said that the number of pilgrims has been fixed according to the standard of social distance along with accommodation, food, toilets and other needs in the dhams.

No entry beyond Sonprayag after three o’clock
Devotees coming to Kedarnath Dham will not be allowed to enter beyond Sonprayag after 3 pm. This is being done to ensure the presence of a limited number of devotees in the Dham at night time.

Haridwar, Rishikesh will be strictly scrutinized
The board conducted an inquiry into the reasons for the arrival of devotees in excess of the fixed number of pilgrims in the dhamas. So it came to know that people used the pass near the date of 10 to 15 October to see two, three October dates. On this, the board has decided that the pass will be examined in Haridwar, Rishikesh, Munikirati, Gauchar, Sonprayag itself. If the passes are of further date, then the devotees will be stopped there. For this, the district collectors of Haridwar, Dehradun and Tehri, Pauri, Rudraprayag, Chamoli have been instructed to make strict arrangements.

The report of the District Magistrates has arrived. On the basis of the report, the number of devotees visited has been increased afresh. The number has been fixed according to the standard of social distance along with accommodation, food, toilets and other needs in the dhams.
