Pakistan and India today agreed to build a bridge on Ravi river on the zero line of Kartarpur corridor to facilitate 5000 Sikh pi,grims daily.
The accord be operational from November 2019 to facilitate Sikh pilgrims to participate in the 550th birth anniversary of Sikh Guru Nanak Dev with temporary arrangements. Both countries agreed to provide visa free( only day permits ) travel to Indians and also Overseas citizenship holders .
The Kartarpur corridor will be vulnerable to flooding as it is being built near the flood plains of the Ravi river. In 2013, when the area was flooded, it had caused great damage to people living in Punjab’s Gurdaspur area.
Once built, the corridor will connect the Darbar Sahib in Pakistan’s Kartarpur with the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district and facilitate visa-free movement of Indian Sikh pilgrims. The pilgrims will require just a permit to visit Kartarpur Sahib, an important Sikh shrine established in 1522 by the faith’s founder Guru Nanak Dev.
