Advance Registration Booking booking Opens

Amarnath Yatra Registration is a very very  important document to have darshan of Lord Shri Amarnathji. Lord Amarnathji which is another name of Lord shiva comes naturally every year to Shri Amarnathji Holy cave located in ganderbal district of south Jammu and  kashmir. This document is used as a pass to enter into the premises of lord Amarnathji Temple Holycave. The other names of Amarnath yatra Registration is Yatra Permit ( YP ) , Yatra Registration Pass, Entry pass, Amarnath Panjikaran, Amarnath Temple Booking Ticket , Darshan pass, entry ticket , Sarvadarshanam Pass, Bank Registration, Helicopter Registration etc. 

Amarnath Yatra Registration is must for all the devotees who want to come for darshan of Shri Amarnathji and want to visit the holy Pilgrimage of Amarnath Yatra. Procedure to obtain the yatra permit is simple and easy; later we will describe step by step procedure to obtain the same. 

The Purpose of Amarnath Yatra Registration is to maintain a register of all the devotees with their information, Photos, and details who take interest in visiting this annual holy pilgrimage. This process is done every year. Since Amarnath Yatra pilgrimage is very tough in nature and there are multi types of local problems, local issues and security problems  so to keep vigilance and to note activity of pilgrims,  the government started the registration process for each and every pilgrim. 

The other purpose for registration is if any mishappens occur during pilgrimage  then the govt provides insurance amount to the deceased pilgrims. Amarnath Yatra Registration also covers insurance amount of upto  Rs 1 lakh for each pilgrims till last year. Amarnath Yatra Registration also helps the government to know the actual number of pilgrims visited during a particular time /month and year  so that a better plan can be arranged from next time onwards.

The Government has fixed and limited only 7500 pilgrims registration from each route. There are two routes one is Pahalgam route via Nunwan, Chandanwari , Sheshnag, Panchtarni, Sangam,  Holy Cave  and other is Neelgrath/ Baltal Route via Domail, Sangam, Holycave.

Overall only 15000 pilgrims are allowed each day to visit the Amarnath Holy Shrine . These 15000 pilgrims are inclusive of trekking and helicopter routes. This threshold and limitation applied in the year 2013 because during 2012 lots of deaths occurred due to limited infrastructure. Earlier 6- 7 lakhs pilgrims were visited every year but after  2012 the number of pilgrims reduced drastically due to permit limitation and medical Certificate and halted to around  2.5 -3.5 Lakhs. The reason for less number of pilgrims is also due to the limited duration of Yatra year by year.

2.  Amarnath Yatra Offline  Registration. 

From 2014 -2018 online registration processes were completely closed due to fake registration, Malpractice  generated by the users . So to keep registration records of each and every pilgrims,   Amarnath Yatra Shrine Board decided to go for only offline registration till 2018. They focused on Color coding of Registration form as per day ( see table below )  through bank registration so that fake registration or invalid registration can be easily identified and security staff could identify the day of registration by looking at the color of the Registration permit card.

 Pilgrims without a registration card are not allowed for yatra in the same way if you  miss the date of Registration then you will not be allowed to go for yatra even if you have a valid registration permit. This is done to control the daily limit of pilgrims of 7500 from each route. Security Personnel also easily identified the day of registration by just looking at the color of the Registration permit card without looking at each and every details. Registration Permit with particular colour  will return after a cycle of 7 days only and in Amarnath it’s not possible to stay for 7 days due to climate and environment problems.  and it worked for the government to control the pilgrims  and they ran it successfully till 2018 and are still going on. But now the internet has developed so  much and there is digital india so pilgrims requested for online registration so it started again in  2019 onwards.

Following is the table of Color coding of Registration form as per day

Once you completed with CHC then your step one is completed.  Here one recent Passport size photograph will be used per pilgrim

Now be prepared with 4 recent passport size photographs, along with original Aadhar /  Voter card / Passport id and its one photocopy for each pilgrim. Please also ready with  original Medical fitness certificate which is to be submitted in Bank. Please keep one photocopy of the original Medical Certificate with you because the bank will keep Original medical Certificate before issuing the Yatra Permit.

Step 4-  Check the availability , if you are getting your desired date then  Pay Rs 100 as registration fee to the bank. After getting Registration Fee Bank Official  will give you  either the Color Coded registration form to fill or they will fill themselves. If they fill themselves then give all the details to them via this online PDF amarnath yatra registration form along with Original Medical Certificate, Photocopy of ID card, 4 Passport size PhotographsDownload Online amarnath yatra  registration form from here.   Please check the colour of the form from the above table as per day and route so that you get the correct registration. Please also check the date and  route of the entry Point in the Registration. If you Go from Baltal/ Domail route then ask for the form for This route and If you go from Nunwan/ Pahalgam/ Chandanwari then ask for this route form. 

Note- Registration Date is same as  entry date to the checkpoint. For Baltal route checkoint is Domail and for Nunwan / Pahalgam route Check point is Chandanwari.  Dont confuse registration date with the Darshan Date. Darshan date will not be same as entry date. Because from Pahalgam you reach Holycave after 2-3 days later due to 30 kms trekking from chandanwari.

Ans “ It depends upon your engagement and time spare for the same.. But we never find anything easy to obtain especially for Amarnath Yatra whether it is Registration permit / helicopter tickets,  ponny palki booking ,  tent/ transport or hotel /houseboat booking. Reason is clear that Amarnath Yatra is one of the biggest Hindu Pilgrimage and festivals in the same way it is one of the busiest times for Jammu and Kashmir tourism and locals. Lakhs of pilgrims interested to book a limited resource this is  the reason everything gets expensive , out of stock so pilgrims find it difficult to get as per their choice date. 

Since we sell Amarnath Yatra Tour Packages so we take guarantee of evertyhing. We  Provide everything as per fixed schedule without any if and but , this is the reason Pilgrims and tourists prefer us and our reliability score  is high  among pilgrims and Vendors.

6. Can  we book registration by myself and package from you ?

Ans – Yes you can do that. Since registration fee is only Rs 100 so it will not give you big relief in package cost deduction.

7.  Can we go to Baltal /chandanwari without registration? 

Ans- No, during yatra time  without registration you will not be allowed into that place. 

8. Q – After reading the article I find it easy to obtain registration ? So I am confused, should I plan my self or use your package service ?

Ans- There is no point of confusion. Registration fee is Rs 100 but to get that you spend lots of money and time. You stand in que like Tatkal Train Ticket booking  for long after leaving your work even if it is not fixed that you will get for the date you need, so it’s not beneficial to spend time . Since we are a dedicated Tour agency  for Amarnath Yatra Pilgrimage and have lots of experience  for Amarnath yatra Pilgrimage so its our work on a daily basis to issue the permits for pilgrims. If you take our point of view  it’s better to outsource the work  to us  because only registration is not the last process apart from this you will have to book hotel/ house Boat /Transport/ Tents/ ponny palki / Helicopter tickets etc.  You almost spend the same  or in the same case more amount as the package only difference is that here we pay to the vendors on behalf of you and in that case you  pay directly to different vendors. So managing a single agency is  always easy  instead of  managing multi agency for unknown places like Jammu and Kashmir from pilgrims point of view.
