According to sources, the list includes names of former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Union ministers Hardeep Puri and Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh along with several MPs and MLAs.

The first group of pilgrims from India is expected to depart for the neighbouring country on 9 November.

India had, on 24 October, signed an agreement with Pakistan on the modalities for operationalising Kartarpur Sahib corridor, paving the way for its inauguration next month ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.

Pakistan will levy $20 as a service charge on each Indian, who will visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, the shrine of Guru Nanak Dev in Pakistan.

The corridor connects Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Kartarpur in Pakistan to Darbar Sahib gurdwara in Gurdaspur, India.
