Introduction In the past years the Board has been receiving representations that a large Group of pilgrims who belong to an extended family or reside in the same Mohalla / Village and are desirous of travelling together to have Darshan together at Holy Cave Shrine are unable to do so because the Registration quota allotted to the nearest located Bank Branch is inadequate for accommodating the demand of a large Group. Therefore, in many cases, the members of such Groups have been compelled to obtain registration for different available dates but arrived at the Base Camps of Baltal / Pahalgam together and faced difficulties as they were stopped from undertaking Yatra on a date different than what was entered in their Yatra Permit. To facilitate all members of a large Group obtaining registration for a particular date, the Board has initiated a new scheme during Yatra 2014 for “Group Registration”.
Guidelines for Group Registration
If Yatris intending to undertake the Yatra in a Group of 5 or more members are unable to obtain Yatra Permits from the nearest located Bank Branches because the allocated number of vacancies (registration quota) have been exhausted, then the individual members of the Group can together apply by registered post to the Chief Executive Officer, Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, Chaitanya Ashram, Talab Tillo, Jammu, to secure registration for the Yatra.
The Group Registration will commence from 1st March 2015 and conclude on 30th May 2015..
30th May 2015 will be the last day of receipt of Application Forms for Group Registration.
Group Registration shall be done on first-come-first-serve basis, subject to the date wise and route wise vacancies (registration quota) available for a particular day / particular route, subject to maximum 50 registrations per group per day per route.
To apply for the Yatra Permit under Group Registration Facility, the Group Leader (one of the intending pilgrim of the group) will have to send the following documents in respect of each member of the Group by registered post at the address indicated in para 1 above:
a) filled-in prescribed Application Forms; b) original copies of the prescribed Compulsory Health Certificates (CHCs) issued by the Authorised Doctor/ Medical Institutions (the formats of the Application Form and CHC and the list of Doctors/ Institutes authorised to issue the CHC are available at Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board’s website:

In case vacancies (registration quota) are not available for a particular date for which Registration has been sought by the Group, the Group Leader will be contacted over telephone and informed about the next available slot for Group Registration and, if that is not acceptable to the Group Leader, the Application Forms, Compulsory Health Certificates, and the Registration Fee shall be returned to the Group Leader through Registered Post.

On-Spot Registration for Shri Amarnath Yatra 2016
As per rules only 14000-15000 registered Shri Amarnath Yatra 2015 pilgrims are allowed beyond Pehlgam and Baltal in a day.
For the convenience of the pilgrims, for their onward journey for the pilgrimage to Shri Amarnath Yatra the Shrine Board also considers to open “On-Spot Registration Centres” if the Yatra Registration for the day is below the prescribed limit of 15,000 registrations
The Registration centres for On-Spot Registration centres are then announced by the authorities. The on-spot registration is typically only available for the dates when there are some vacancies.
Pilgrims should prefer to get registration from their respective areas well in advance and should not leave for Yatra with the aniticipation to go for ‘On spot registration’ as it may cause them inconvenience because one might be required to stand in the queue for quite some time as large gatherings are usually seen at on spot registration centres.
Various departments including Police, Traffic, Tourism department to take the task to make the pilgrims aware through public announcements, pamphlets, banners and display on LCD screens that unregistered pilgrims would not be allowed to go for Shri Amarnath Yatra and therefore, Yatris are advised to avoid such practices.
