Start international flights in India

Thousands if not more Indians are stranded by the international flight suspension by the Indian government in their effort to fight the COVID-19 global pandemic. We appreciate all the things that our government is doing and understand the need for a lockdown and suspension of travel services. But by the time the second lockdown ends it will be over 41 days without the ability to travel for Indians. Because of this people are stranded in foreign countries away from their families and in some cases living in dire conditions in Indian embassy buildings. There are people stranded in India who came to visit their families and are now unable to leave. The inability to return to the destination of choice is causing a lot of problems for people, including but not limited to loss of employment, financial burden and debt due to loss of income, loss of immigration status, anxiety. If the air traffic is not restored soon people's lives will be severely upended and people will have to suffer the consequences of it for years to come. While we realize that COVID-19 has put us in an unprecedented situation, we request the government to reinstate international flight traffic in a staggered manner, even with case by case approvals if needed, so that people in dire need to travel can avail this facility. Please sign this petition and spread it as many people as possible so that it is taken note of.
