The Government of West Bengal, the Government of India in their various departments also run various activities to minimum amenities and services for the benefits of the attending pilgrimage in Gagasagar. In this year the Govt of WB has lifted the shameful pilgrimage tax upon Hindus in Gangasagar, but extruding the poor Hindu pilgrimages by taking double or three times ion Bus, Taxi, Ferry services with fake reasons made by the bus/taxi/transport owners’ syndicates owned or influenced by the Muslim operators in west Bengal. Despite that 6 lakh Hindu pilgrims are expected to take a Holy Bath in the mighty confluence of Ganges and to visit this ancient heritage Tirtha (pilgrimage) and Kapil Muni Temple at Gangasagar. As per Hindu belief ”One Should visit Gangasagar Onece at least while other sites many times” ~ sab tirath bar bar, Gangasagar ek bar. The sky will be filled with the awesome sounds of Bay of Bengal with the shouting of the devotees : Ganga Mai Ki Jai, Bhagaban Kapil Muni Maharj Ji ki Jai, Sanatan Hindu Dharm ki Jai. Bharat Mata ki Jai.
