This time there will be unprecedented security in Shri Amarnath Yatra, which will be held after two years. Given the possibility of more passengers and other aspects related to security, more than 40 thousand personnel of CRPF and other paramilitary forces will be deployed.

The deployment of such a large number will make the security impenetrable for the safe and peaceful conduct of the Amarnath Yatra. After the instructions of the Union Home Ministry, preparations for the Yatra have started. The ministry has asked the Jammu and Kashmir Police and the central security agencies to prepare a foolproof plan for the Yatra.

Sources say that Union Home Minister Amit Shah will review the preparations for the Yatra in the next few days after meeting with Jammu and Kashmir Police, paramilitary forces, security and intelligence agencies, and state administration officials regarding the preparations and security arrangements for the Yatra.

Amarnath Yatra will start on June 30, a gap of two years after the Corona epidemic. It will run for 43 days till August 11. The registration for the Yatra will start on April 11. Many devotees from across the country are expected to attend the Yatra. In view of this, preparations are being made by the state administration. Adequate arrangements are being made for accommodation in the base camp.

During the Yatra, all the registered pilgrims will be given RF ID tags, which will enable the passengers to be tracked. This will save the devotees from any untoward incident. The security cordon will remain tight on the entire journey route from Lakhanpur, the state’s gateway. There will be a security forces camp at various places on the highway.

Social media platforms will also be closely monitored. Cyber ​​experts will keep a constant watch on social media due to the possibility of spreading fake news on social media and conspiracies disturbing the atmosphere in the Valley.
