• After 2 Years, India To End All Covid Curbs From March 31, Masks To Stay

    Wearing face masks and other Covid appropriate behaviour will continue, said the Ministry of Home Affairs

    After a long period of two years, the Centre is set to remove all Covid-19 restrictions from March 31. The Ministry of Home Affairs on March 23 said that the Disaster Management Act will no longer be invoked for Covid-safety measures. 

    However, wearing face masks and other Covid appropriate behaviour will continue.

    In a letter addressed to all state secretaries, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla said that on the directions of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), the Union Home Ministry (MHA) had issued orders and guidelines under the DM Act 2005 for the containment of Covid-19 in the country.

    He said, “After considering the overall improvement in the situation and preparedness of the government to deal with the pandemic, NDMA has decided that there may not be any further need to invoke the provisions of the DM Act for Covid containment measures.”

    After the expiry of the existing order dated February 25, 2022, no further charge may be issued by the MHA.

    The total caseload of the country stands at 23,913 and the daily positivity rate has declined to 0.28 percent.
