Why You Should Register for Char Dham Yatra
- The biometric registration of every pilgrim is extremely important and a mandatory procedure which has to be followed by every pilgrim. This feature enables the government to keep an exact track of every pilgrim on their Yatra and allows them to keep a strict check on the flow of tourists to these sacred shrines. The lack of pilgrim monitoring system opens doors for unexpected incidents.
- Apart from keeping track the pilgrims will be able to enjoy some special benefits by utilizing this biometric card. Some of these facilities include services for food and accommodation which can be availed easily by using this biometric pass.
