Pakistan has sent final draft of Kartarpur Corridor agreement to India asserting that every Indian pilgrim will be charged $20 for visiting the Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara. The draft also highlighted that the money will be charged as a 'service fee' and not as an entrance fee. The development has come a month after India objected to Pakistan's proposal to charge the service fee from Indian pilgrims visiting Kartarpur Sahib. The much-awaited Kartarpur Corridor will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8. According to Pak officials, the corridor will initially allow 5,000 pilgrims to visit Kartarpur Sahib, which will be further increased to 10,000 in future.
