Unlock 2.0: Red Fort, Qutub Minar In Delhi Reopen For Tourists From Today
Historical monuments in the non-containment zone reopened for tourism with entry by valid e-ticketing and digital payment in cafeterias and parking.
Delhi’s heritage buildings are being readied to welcome visitors once again. This is following the Centre’s decision to lift restrictions from July 6. But things will not be the same as before. There are several new rules or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) calls them that visitors will have to be mindful of. For instance, there will be no physical ticket sales and all tickets will have to be bought online. Even the water bottles that you buy or the parking charge that you pay will have to be digital payments.
If you show up at the monument, without a face mask, you will not be allowed inside. Not all monuments in Delhi will open on Monday (July 6). For instance, Red Fort, Qutub Minar and Humayun’s Tomb, among others, will remain open but Taj Mahal remains shut as it falls in the containment zone. An official of Union Ministry of Culture said, “New rules are needed in a world shaken by COVID-19. Group photos will also be a no-no and all visitors will have to strictly adhere to timings.”
