BSNL has decided to provide pre-paid SIM cards for Amarnath Yatra pilgrims. Amarnath Yatra 2012 will be starting on 25 June. As per the statement released by Amarnath Shrine Board, SIM cards will be sold only to registered yatris at special counters being setup at the Nunwan and Baltal Base Camps.
The SIM cards will be operative only for 4 days in order to cover the pilgrims’ journey to the Shrine from either route.
Interested yatris can avail this facility by submitting Photostat copies of Amarnath Yatra registration slip, identity proof, address proof, and UID card along with four photographs.
