The new system will come into effect from 23 September. This decision of the government has raised a new hope among the people associated with the tourism industry.
On Tuesday, Chief Secretary Om Prakash has issued an order to do away with the earlier mandatory rule for negative report of the Covid investigation for tourists and to lift the ban of booking a two-day stay in the hotel and home stay.
