The Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) on Thursday night announced commencement of registration of pilgrims for yatra through online mode from April and said RFID-based tracking will be put in place for the movement of vehicles during pilgrimage to the shrine in South Kashmir Himalayas.

"The online registration will start through banks in the month of April 2022 with a limit of 20,000 registrations fixed per day", Additional CEO SASB Rahul Singh said during a high-level meeting chaired by Jammu Divisional Commissioner Raghav Langer to review the arrangements for the upcoming yatra.

He said that on-spot registrations will also be held at designated counters during yatra days.

Singh said that to ensure the safety of Amarnath pilgrims, the board has decided to use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) for tracking movement of vehicles and pilgrims during this year's pilgrimage to the revered Shrine.
