Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB) has geared up to make elaborate arrangements for the facilitation of pilgrims who are expected to visit the holy cave shrine of Goddess Vaishno Devi in large numbers during the ensuing Navratras beginning last week of the month.

The arrangements include proper water and power supply along the track leading to the shrine, sanitation, availability of special “fast-related” food at the catering outlets of the shrine board, etc.

In this context, Simrandeep Singh, chief executive officer (CEO), shrine board, reviewed the arrangements being put in place on the tracks and in the Bhawan area at a meeting held under his chairmanship at Katra today.

He emphasised the need to ensure all the required arrangements in view of the expected rush of pilgrims during the Navratras and other ensuing festivals.

He asked all officials, engineers and area and unit heads of the board to personally take stock of the arrangements on ground in their respective areas of responsibility on a daily basis and ensure sanitation and cleanliness besides other requisite arrangements.

The CEO said, “We have to double our efforts to meet the rising expectations of pilgrims so that they go back with a pleasant experience and happy memories.”

He also said all routes leading to the holy shrine must be fully maintained for smooth movement of pilgrims apart from ensuring sufficient supplies of provisions, food, water, etc, along the track.
