Vaishno Devi Yatra

HC question Shrine Board asking “Why only rich people can sit at Mata Vaishno Devi Aarti ?”

J&K High Court asked Sri Mata Vaishno Shrine Board to submit an answer to court notice about commercial policies of board. Advocate Sumit Nayyar filed an PIL saying board has been generating business from Aarti making it accessible to only richer ones.

The appeal has made accusitions against Shrine Board of charging hefty fees from pilgrims. Board has been charging high for the auspicious Aarti conducted two times a day. Common pilgrims are much far away to attend these Aarti of the Goddess.

  1. Ram Saroop Vir:

    Aarti sitting should be allowed as in the past, when I had an opportunity to visit in 1985. No extra payment was charged. The number of persons who can sit comfortably should be allowed free of any charge. It is my humble suggestion.
