No orders to shut hotels till Oct 15: Tourism Ministry
cancel

New Delhi: The Union Tourism Ministry on Wednesday clarified that it had not issued any order directing hotel owners to keep hotels shut till October 15.

The clarification came in response to a fake letter that was in circulation on social media, claiming that hotels/restaurants will remain closed till October 15, 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

"No such letter has been issued by the Ministry of Tourism, and people must not believe any such kind of fake news," the ministry clarified.

The Tourism Ministry had already issued denials on social media and lodged a complaint with the cyber crime unit of the Mumbai Police in this regard.

The PIB fact check unit also issued denials a few days back but the fake message began circulating again on social media.

The Indian tourism industry has taken a hit ever since the nationwide lockdown was announced by the government to contain the spread of coronavirus.
