As per reports, officials of India and Pakistan will sign Kartarpur corridor pact on October 24. The pact is likely to be signed by a Home ministry official from the Indian side. Pakistan is insisting on levying a fee of $20 per pilgrim despite India’s objections.
The corridor will facilitate visa-free movement of Indian pilgrims who need a permit to visit Karatarpur Sahib. India and Pakistan have held a series of talks for the functioning of the corridor ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
