How much money Pakistan will earn from Kartarpur Corridor project Sikh pilgrims? Surprising Amount

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan is expected to earn up to Indian Rs 258 crore per annum -- about Pakistani Rs 571 crore -- from pilgrims visiting Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, the final resting place of the founder of Sikhism Shri Guru Nanak Dev, officials said on Monday.

The service fee from the pilgrims will be another source of foreign currency generation for Pakistan, which is already reeling under severe financial crisis, a government official said.

Since 5,000 pilgrims are allowed to visit the gurdwara Darbar Saheb Kartarpur, Pakistan, which will be charging $20 service fee per pilgrim, will earn $1,00,000 everyday.

With Monday's rate of Indian Rs 70.95 for one USD, Pakistan will earn Indian Rs 70.95 lakh every day.
