Hon’ble Governor Shri Satya Pal Malik (Chairman of the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board) on Wednesday, 28th August 2019, appreciated the coordinated efforts made by the NIC J&K team for the smooth conduct of this year’s Shri Amarnath Ji Yatra.
On this occasion, Hon’ble Governor felicitated NIC officers, Shri Abhay Kumar, SIO, J&K, Baiju Ubbott, Scientist ‘D’ and Sideshwar Bhagat, Scientist ‘B’ for developing an online application for registration of Yatris, scanning and tracking of permits using QR Code, during Shri Amarnathji Yatra 2019.
Besides registration, Yatris were provided online facility for making payment after going through a series of authentication processes, thereby enabling them to download their Yatra Permit with QR code. This permit is being scanned at various gates from Jammu to the Holy cave by J&K Police and CRPF personnel. This has enabled the Shrine Board administration to track the movement of Yatris along the Yatra route using web interface.
