Ever since the reopening of Char Dhams, Devotees were not satisfied with the rule of daily limit for the pilgrims. There were many issues faced by the pilgrims like non-availability of slots who booked online darshan and the problems caused by the cancellations due to daily limits. But now the Devotees will be extremely happy to hear that the high court of Uttarakhand increased the limit of devotees for the holy Char Dham Yatra. The Pious Char Dham Yatra is open to all. However, Devotees have to follow all the government laid covid-19 protocols strictly for their safety to get the darshan of the almighty.
The Uttarakhand government in Nainital approached the high court on the issue that devotees are facing problems in darshan as they were asked to return by the administration officials due to the limited number of pilgrims. The high court now has increased the number of pilgrims for Char Dham Yatra 2021.
