ASI monuments to be reopened from July 6; visitors to be capped, masks mandatory

NEW DELHI: All ASI protected monuments will be reopened for the public from July 6 with entry only through e-tickets, a cap on the number of visitors and mandatory wearing of masks, the Culture Ministry said on Thursday.

Earlier in June, the Ministry had reopened 820 monuments out of the over 3,000 ASI-maintained monuments where religious events take place.

As many as 3,691 Centrally-protected monuments and archaeological sites maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) were shut from March 17 in view of the coronavirus crisis. (AGENCIES)
