Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the much-awaited Kartarpur Corridor to Sri Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan, on the Indian side on 8 November, to mark the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.

In a major initiative last November, both India and Pakistan had agreed to set up the Kartarpur corridor.

The corridor will connect the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India's Punjab with Darbar Sahib at Kartarpur, just four kilometres from the International Border, located at Narowal district of Pakistan's Punjab province.

Pakistan has decided to impose a USD 20 service fee on pilgrims visiting the Gurdwara.
