On February 2, 2006 WebIndia123 reported, "The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandik Committee (SGPC) which controls a number of Sikh religious shrines in India and the Pakistan Gurdwara Parbandik Committee (PSGPC), which controls Sikh shrines across the border have finally decided to bury their differences and work in closer coordination with each other. 'We are happy that the SGPC has recognised our existence and we hope to work in close cooperation with each other'', PSGPC acting president Dr Swaran Singh said... The PSGPC which was established in 1998 was given recognition by the SGPC only last year. The SGPC had earlier objected to the formation of the PSGPC on grounds that the Sikh Gurdwara Act of 1925 gave jurisdiction to the SGPC to manage gurdwaras in Pakistan."
