Time For India To Ask The World To End Travel Ban

    With the number of daily coronavirus cases seeing a dip for the last couple of days and states gradually easing curbs and lifting restrictions, the chorus for lifting global travel restrictions vis a vis India also has started gaining ground.

    With countries clamping travel bans, there is a ripple effect being felt across sectors. While on one hand lot of Indian professionals and families are stranded and students are missing out on classes without clearance to fly, on the other hand business, trade and commerce is  getting impacted as well.

    Also, the travel ban is impacting India’s image abroad which calls for aggressive push to end this now and ease restrictions. Ministry of External Affairs and India’s diplomatic missions need to take this issue up on priority with the United States and other nations.
