Special Pilgrimage Journey departs fromNew Delhi on February 8, 2024
For the tour, including meals, tea, snacks, bus, and three-tier sleeper class coach, the fare will be ₹24,000 per person. For advance booking, ₹1,001 per traveler should be deposited in cash or online to the 'Shri Shiv Shankar Tirth Yatra' SBI Bank account in Rishikesh. The remaining amount will be collected when boarding the vehicle at the start of the journey.
Buses will be arranged by the organization at designated places. These buses will take the pilgrims from the railway station to the temples and bring them back to the station after the visit. For places where there is no bus service available, the distance from the temple to the station is negligible, so the pilgrims can walk or take a rickshaw (at their own expense) to reach there. This way, the pilgrims will have to walk very little on foot.
During the journey, pilgrims will be provided with morning bed tea, tea/coffee, and snacks. Lunch and dinner will consist of one type of lentil, one vegetable dish, rice, and chapati. Evening tea will also be served. Ghee will be used in rice, lentils, and chapatis, while refined oil will be used in snacks, vegetables, and puris. Both Basmati and non-Basmati rice will be available depending on the availability. Depending on the availability, pickle, papad, sweet, and salad will be served along with the meals. Onions and garlic will be excluded from the food. The meals will be prepared on a pure vegetarian wood stove. Each pilgrim will be provided with a bottle of mineral water during lunch and dinner.
Each pilgrim must carry two passport-sized photos, original voter card, and original Aadhar card. Additionally, please bring along the following items: a glass, a spoon, a plastic bucket, mug, a plastic seat (3x3 feet) for washing and bathing, a plastic rope for drying clothes, and bedding (as per weather conditions).
For the safety of the pilgrims, the committee will arrange sufficient individuals for making and serving tea, snacks, and meals on the train. No traveler should wear gold or silver jewelry. During the journey, the responsibility for financial and physical losses as well as the traveler's belongings lies with the traveler. The organizing committee will not be responsible for any losses incurred by the travelers.
For rail travel, each traveler will have a complete berth for sleeping. No benches will be placed between the seat berths in the compartments. Each compartment will have three-tier sleeper class coaches. Travelers should bring their own bedding (according to the weather conditions) for the train journey. Where the train is not available, arrangements for overnight stay will be made in guesthouses by the committee.
Our journey will have only basic medical facilities. Travelers who regularly take medication should carry their medicines according to the itinerary of the journey. In case of any medical need during the journey, arrangements for hospital/doctor will be made by the committee at the expense of the traveler. Travelers will be responsible for sudden accidents and natural calamity compensation during the journey. Each compartment of every coach will have a charging board for mobiles, but the safety of the mobile will be the responsibility of the traveler.
Elderly individuals and solo female travelers can comfortably undertake our journey. The atmosphere of the journey is homely, resembling a family environment, ensuring that there is no feeling of loneliness.
For those eligible for L.T.C. (Leave Travel Concession) / L.F.C. (Leave Fare Concession), we will provide the necessary documents such as the travel receipt, travel certificate, and a copy of the railway's travel program. However, the responsibility of obtaining L.T.C. lies with the travelers and not with the organizing institution.
Travelers are required to follow the following rules:
Travelers must strictly adhere to all the rules set by the Railway Department for special journeys, including baggage regulations and railway timetable. The jurisdiction for any dispute will be limited to Rishikesh (Dehradun). The Consumer Forum will also have jurisdiction limited to Rishikesh (Dehradun).
Travelers are requested to inform the head office after booking to avoid any possible errors. While booking the seat, travelers should carefully read the name, photo, and travel agency's name of the founder Shri Lalashiv Charan Lal Agarwal.
Each traveler must adhere to the schedule as per the timetable. If anyone gets separated from the group due to any reason, they will have to reach the next station/destination at their own expense.
Travelers suffering from infectious diseases, consuming alcoholic substances, or causing disturbances will be separated from the journey at the discretion of the organizer.
If a traveler wants to return home incomplete due to any reason or illness, the organizer will provide them with a Three Tier Sleeper Class ticket only to reach home. No refund will be provided under any circumstances. This arrangement will only apply up to 5 days before the completion of the journey.
The availability and timing of the train during the journey are subject to the railways. Therefore, in case of any delay in train arrival, flight delays, bus breakdowns, railway schedule changes, bad weather, weekly holidays, strikes, rallies, or any other reasons that may lead to not being able to visit a place, the organization/organizer will make necessary changes in the program. Travelers are requested to cooperate and provide full support under such circumstances.
During the journey, the manager will try to provide maximum comfort to the travelers, but some inconvenience during the journey is natural. At such times, travelers are advised to endure it with a spirit of penance and provide full support to the organizer. For any printing errors, please pardon us.
Rules for Cancellation of Journey: If a traveler wants to cancel their seat booking due to any reason, they can do so by giving a written notice up to 12 days prior to the departure date of the journey. In such a case, the advance amount (after deducting the railway reservation cancellation fee) will be refunded. If a written notice is not received by the organizer up to 12 days prior to the departure date, the advance amount will not be refunded. If the booking has been done within the last 12 days before the journey date and the traveler cancels their seat, the advance amount will not be refunded. If the traveler cancels the journey from the booking date until 5 days prior to the journey date, the organization has the legal right to collect the full fare of the journey from the traveler.
