National Informatics Centre is the technology partner to Ministry of Home Affairs, for design, development and implementation of online registration portal (https://prakashpurb550.mha.gov.in/), network setup at Integrated Check Post (ICP) and Immigration clearance system for the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor project.
The NIC-IVFRT team developed online registration portal for the pilgrims was launched on October 24 2019, wherein pilgrims can register themselves online and exercise the choice to travel on any day. After successful registration, pilgrims will be informed by SMS and email for the confirmation of registration.
Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Integrated Check Post on November 9, 2019 and flagged off first batch of pilgrims at Kartarpur Sahib Corridor in Gurdaspur, Punjab. He took a guided tour of the Passenger Terminal setup prior to the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor.
The project has been implemented by NIC in a record time and within the deadline of inauguration by Hon’ble Prime Minister. The entire network infrastructure and immigration control system at Dera Baba Nanak ICP has been setup with operationalisation of 56 Immigration counters. A total of 562 pilgrims were part of the first ‘jatha’ who visited Gurdwara Darbar Sahib on the first day of the pilgrimage. Commissioner, Bureau of Immigration appreciated the team for successful delivery of the project.
