Book for helicopter services to Vaishnodevi online now

Last updated: 29 April, 2011
Jammu, Apr 29, (PTI) :

To provide better services to the pilgrims visiting the cave shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi, the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB) today launched an on-line reservation system for the yatris availing the heli–service on the Katra-Sanjichhat-Katra Sector.

"The board today launched the on-line reservation system for the pilgrims to avail heli–services during their pilgrimage to the cave shrine," SMVDSB CEO R K Goyal said.

Goyal, who briefed SMVDSB Chairman and State Governor N N Vohra in this regard, said, "It is part of its continuing endeavours to provide improved services to the pilgrims visiting the shrine."

He said that after pursuing an entirely transparent bidding process, the one-way passenger fare for heli-travel between Katra and Sanjichhat has come down from Rs 1,225 per passenger to Rs 699 from April 1, 2011.

Expressing satisfaction at the "very significant" reduction in the heli-fares, the Governor hoped that larger number of senior citizens and all physically challenged yatris would now avail this facility.
