An ASI official said visitors will be able to book entry tickets online. However, no offline booking facility will be available, the official added. According to the ASI order, the opening of the monuments will be in strict compliance with the executive orders, if any, issued by the state, district or the disaster management authority.
Tourists can visit the monuments following the Corona rules. Appropriate guidelines and SOPs issued by Union and states governments, ministries and departments will be scrupulously followed while regulating the flow of visitors, the order said.
