Jammu, March 7 (PTI): The Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board has decided to reduce the number of community kitchens during the Amarnath yatra on the recommendations of the National Disaster Management Authority and security agencies.

“The number of community kitchens (langars) during the yatra this year will be less as compared to that in 2013,” board CEO Navin K. Choudhary said.

The board has “also revised the terms and conditions for setting up such kitchens in view of concerns by the agencies on maintenance of hygiene in the langar area, environmental protection, no use of plastic materials.”
