New Delhi: In a piece of good news for the travel enthusiasts, the central government is planning to provide a hassle-free travel experience for passengers travelling by air within the country.
You ask how? Well, the Centre is planning to get rid of the mandatory RT-PCR negative report rule for those passengers who have received both shots of a Covid-19 vaccine amid a drastic fall in daily active coronavirus cases in the country. Isn’t this wonderful? Scroll down for more details.
Many states currently require an RT-PCR negative certificate; however, Civil aviation minister Hardeep Singh Puri recently said that the discussion on the issue is underway among representatives of different ministries, including the Health Ministry.
