On Friday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah held a high-level meeting in the nation’s capital to evaluate preparations for the Amarnath Yatra. He directed that enough security measures be made to make the yatra a pleasant one for the yatris.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration has made it a top priority to ensure that pilgrims to Amarnath have a “comfortable darshan” and “should not face any difficulty,” so Shah has ordered the necessary security measures to be taken along the entire 62-day Amarnath Yatra route, beginning on July 1 and ending on August 31.


Shah further emphasised the need of ensuring a stress-free journey “from the airport and railway station to the yatra base camp,” adding, “for the convenience of the yatris, I have directed to provide air service from Srinagar and Jammu at night.”

The Home Minister subsequently issued orders to replenish oxygen supplies and make available extra medical teams.

To prepare for any potential medical crisis, he ordered the deployment of a sufficient number of ambulances and helicopters.

Shah ordered that all facilities, including transportation, lodging, utilities (including power and water), medical care, and other services, be made available to Amarnath yatris.

He also issued orders to improve the yatra route’s communication system and to have machinery ready to unblock the trail as soon as a landslip was detected.

During the meeting, he informed the authorities that RFID cards will be issued to each yatri in order to track their whereabouts in real time.

Each Amarnath yatri will be insured for Rs 5 million, and their animals for Rs 50,000. In addition, a “tent city,” Wi-Fi hotspots, and enough lighting will be set up along the route,” according to a statement released by the Home Ministry.

“Additionally, online live darshan of Baba Barfani, live telecast of morning and evening aarti in the Amarnath cave shrine, and religious and cultural programmes will be organised at the base camp,” the release added.
