She reminded that there are 4,000 slots daily from Rishikesh, out of which 1,000 slots are for each Dham. In view of the rush of passengers, the number of registration counters has been increased to 12. And the token system has been shifted to ISBT so that there is no crowd at the registration counter. She directed the officials to make arrangements for entertainment of the passengers at the transit camp.

She also directed the related officials including Municipal Commissioner, Rishikesh, and SDM, Rishikesh, to ensure provision of drinking water and other basic facilities to the passengers in an organised manner. She also directed them to make arrangements for accommodation of the pilgrims in the nearest school, college, wedding point, Dharamshala if more devotees arrive than the permitted numbers of pilgrims every day.
