Pakistan insists on levying a fee of $20 on all pilgrims,” Indian external ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar was quoted by Hindustan Times as saying. Pakistan reaffirms commitment to Kartarpur Corridor opening in November“We have urged Pakistan not to do so in the interests of devotees, and also because this is a P2P (people-to-people) initiative.
