aviation ministry will not decide alone
Puri said the aviation ministry alone would not take a decision on this. Nodal agencies including health experts working with the government will also be involved in this decision to be taken in the interest of passengers.
State subject is health
Puri said that health is a state subject. Asking passengers to give negative RT-PCR report before entering the state, it is entirely up to that.
Discussion on ‘Vaccine Passport’ also
The concept of ‘Vaccine Passport’ for travelers traveling abroad is also being considered. India has opposed this and called it ‘discriminatory’. In the G-7 meeting of the Organization of Developed Countries, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan had said that India is not in favor of it in view of the current situation. The vaccine has not reached many people in developing countries as compared to developed countries.
Actually, developed countries say that people who have taken both doses of the vaccine are in a way safe from the virus. Therefore, such people should not be banned from moving anywhere.
Domestic air travel will be tension free, if the vaccine is already done, then there will be no need for RT-PCR report, this is the government’s plan
