The Govt. of India announced new guidelines for effective control of COVID-19. Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued the guidelines on 23rd March 2021, which will remain in force up to 30th April 2021. The govt stated that the coordinated effort of Central and States/UTs resulted in a decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in India. There was a sustained decline in cases continuously for about 5 months. But a fresh surge in COVID-19 cases, in some parts of the country, is a cause of concern now. 

According to the new guidelines:

  1. Essential and non-essential goods will be allowed without any further approval.
  2. No restrictions will be on International cargo operations and flights approved by DGCA.
  3. Domestic passenger flights are operational with reduced frequency.
  4. All customs related activities are fully operational
  5. There are no major impacts on exports, shipments are moving smoothly.
  6. State and UTs, based on their assessment situation, may impose local restrictions at their administration level.
  7. There shall be no restriction on inter-State and intra-state movement of persons and goods.
