To curb duplication of registration forms of Amarnath yatra, the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) will issue new forms this year onwards, with security features of currency notes.


The forms will be printed by Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India Limited (SPMCIL), which is also responsible for the printing of currency notes, passports and stamp papers.

The printing will cost nearly `75 lakh.

The design of the form was approved in a meeting of the board chaired by state governor NN Vohra, who is also the chairman of the board.

The revised form will have many security features, including the Ashoka pillar watermark and text 'Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board' and the board's logo printed in the background, which can be seen only through a powerful magnifying glass.

The logo, which will be printed in fluorescent blue ink, can be viewed under ultraviolet light, and the printing would be done with chemically-sensitive security ink.
