Srinagar, Sep 24 (IANS) The Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) on Friday announced that those who were registered for Yatra 2021 can get refund of their registration fee.

It has been decided that the registration fee of those who had registered themselves for Yatra 2021 through various banks like the Punjab National Bank, the Jammu and Kashmir Bank, and YES Bank shall be refunded to them from October 1-31.

Those who want to get their fee refunded shall have to approach the branch, which had issued the yatra permit, and surrender the original permit along with an application for the refund. The refund shall be made to each yatri individually and not to anybody else on their behalf.

The SASB has also kept the option for revalidation of the permit for Yatra 2022. For this, the yatris must keep the yatra permit form intact, which they can get revalidated by visiting same bank branch when the registration opens for Yatra 2022.

The annual pilgrimage to Amarnath this year was cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic, but the shrine board carried out all the traditional religious rituals at cave shrine.

The SASB had also made arrangements for the live telecast of morning and evening Aarti on TV channels and social media in addition to facilitating Virtual Pooja, Hawan, and Online Prasad booking. Around 7 to 8 million devotees performed the free virtual darshan on Jio TV platform through live streaming on Shri Amarnathji Channel.
