India, Oct. 21 -- Devotees headed for Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, Pakistan to attend the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Sikhism's founder Guru Nanak say they are not upset over the $20 fee for the pilgrims but the delay in online registration by the Union government.
On Monday, India said it had informed Pakistan that it will be ready to sign an agreement to operationalise the corridor even as it again called for the waiver of a service fee of $20 per pilgrim imposed by Islamabad.
