In November 2018, the Indian government had announced its decision to develop the Kartarpur border corridor from Dera Baba Nanak in Indian Punjab’s Gurdaspur district till the gurdwara at Narowal in Pakistan.

Making the announcement, Union Finance minister Arun Jaitley said that the 3-4 kilometre long corridor would be funded and built entirely by the central government.

The announcement was welcomed by the Sikh community in India and by the Prime Minister Imran Khan, who laid the foundation stone for the Kartarpur corridor in Pakistan on November 28.

Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu had attended the event along with union ministers Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Hardeep Singh Puri.
