This year the board has decided to make the Amarnath Yatra Plastic-free in order to take care of the environment and instructions will be laid out to keep the yatra routes and pilgrims camp plastic-free. Further, this year the board has decided to hike the quota for online registration, as a result of the success of the pilot project that limited the number of pilgrims last year.
