Domestic flights: will listen to the center or follow the orders of the states

Domestic flights start on 25 May. These are the initial attempts to rebuild the economy that had collapsed due to the lockdown. Airports are ready with new rules and precautions. But the separate statements of the central and state governments have increased the difficulty of the common man. In fact, many states have decided to essentially quarantine passengers from domestic flights.Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Telangana, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Kerala and Jammu and Kashmir have made Quarantine Mandatory for Flyers. While Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Saturday that if the test report is negative, there are no symptoms, then no quarantine is required. He has also said that 'Arogya Setu App is like a passport. If your status is green in the app, why would anyone want a quarantine. ' Now, whose will be said in such a situation, it will be a matter of view. The situation needs to be clarified in this regard.
Arrangements for thermal screening of passengers have been made at all airports. Those with no symptoms of corona will be allowed to ride on the plane. Apart from this, the status of the Arogya Setu app should also be green. If a passenger has no risk, then keeping it in the quarantine means that many people are not getting hugged.
Karnataka has decided to keep people coming by train in the institutional quarantine for 14 days. Air travelers from Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh will stay in Karnataka for seven days in Institutional and seven days in Home Quarantine. Home quarantine has also been made mandatory for the rest of the states.Quarantine will be exempt only if the test report of Corona from an ICMR certified lab is negative. On 13 May, Karnataka sent 50 passengers from the Rajdhani Express back to Delhi as they were not ready to go to the Institutional Quarantine.

If this arrangement of quarantine period is implemented then the traders will face a lot of problem. Once you go to another state, the person will be stuck there for at least 14 days. During this time, his business will be affected. The home state may also quarantine upon return. In such a situation, the entire 30-day schedule can go awry once you board the plane.
The central government has given powers to the states to decide for themselves in lockdown-4. State Governments have also been given the right to exempt economic activities after fixing red, orange and green zones, containment areas and buffer zones. This has led to major confusions. It would have been better if the central government had issued guidelines at the national level and the states would have followed it. Right now, due to the different policies of different states, the passengers will have trouble.
