Government has said, India is committed towards early completion of the Kartarpur Corridor project and asked Pakistan to show flexibility on charging fees as it is a sentimental matter for the pilgrims.
Responding to a question, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, New Delhi hopes that the infrastructure projects on the Indian side get completed in a time-bound manner. He told newsmen, the four-lane highway has been completed and the state-of-the-art passenger terminal will be completed by October end. Mr. Kumar said, India shared an agreement with Pakistan but it has not received a reply yet.
The Kartarpur Corridor will connect Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, Pakistan, with Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district of Punjab. It will facilitate visa-free movement of Indian pilgrims, who will only have to obtain a permit to visit the revered Kartarpur Sahib.
