As per the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) framed on the directions of Supreme Court of India, only 15000 registered Shri Amarnath Yatra 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
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 from Lakhanpur (the entry point to Jammu & Kashmir state) to Jammu 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.
