Uttarakhand government has decided to impose a ban on the movement of vehicles on mountain routes in the state from 10 am to 4 pm in view of the Char Dham Yatra.
“It has been decided by the government to ban the movement of vehicles on mountain routes from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm during Char Dham Yatra,” informed Uttarakhand Transport Commissioner Ranveer Singh Chouhan.
The decision has been taken for the convenience and safe journey of the pilgrims on the Char Dham Yatra.
Chouhan said this year’s Char Dham Yatra is expected to attract a large number of pilgrims.
The Char Dham Yatra begins on Akshaya Tritiya when the doors of Gangotri-Yamnotri are opened. The doors of Kedarnath Dham will be opened for devotees on May 6 and Badrinath Dham on May 8.
