Guru Nanak Jayanti: Govt To Reopen Kartarpur Corridor On November 27

Mumbai: The central government plans to reopen the Kartarpur corridor from November 27, with confirmation of the 551st Guru Nanak Jayanti.

The 4.7-km-long route connecting Dera Baba Nanak Sahib in Gurdaspur, India, and Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, Pakistan, was closed by the government due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country.

Confirming the government’s decision to reopen the corridor for devotees, Vijay Sampla took to his official Twitter handle saying, “The big decision of the Government of India, Shri Kartarpur Sahib Corridor will reopen on November 27 on the 551st Prakash Parv of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.”

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had announced that the decision to open the Kartarpur Corridor would be taken as per the COVID-19 protocol.

Speaking at the weekly virtual briefing, MEA spokesperson, Anurag Shrivastava said that due to the COVID-19 protocol, the Kartarpur corridor was closed and it would be reopened after consultation with all concerned authorities.

“The decision to reopen the Kartarpur Corridor will be in line with COVID19 protocol. We are in touch with all the concerned authorities,” said Srivastava.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kartarpur Corridor was shut down by the Indian government in March. The Pakistan government had also imposed a ban on Pakistani nationals from traveling via the Kartarpur corridor.
