Passengers from Maharashtra no longer need negative RT-PCR report at Delhi airport
Mumbai : New Covid19 guideline frees air travellers from Maharashtra from mandatory negative RT-PCR test result when they land at Delhi Airport. Airline officials have confirmed the same.

As reported by a newspaper, latest guidelines suggest that RT-PCR report is not required for domestic arrivals from Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
The RT-PCR negative report was made mandatory for people travelling from Maharashtra from April 2021 as Covid-19 cases in the state increased.
