A day after a dispute between MakeMyTrip and the Delhi Police regarding false claims about a “bandh” during the G20 Summit in the national capital, the travel firm has announced its support for the Delhi Police by displaying all of its G20 Summit-related advisories on its platform.
MakeMyTrip posted on X, saying, “Travel should always be stress-free, so we believe. We’ve extended our support to @DelhiPolice and have consolidated all traffic advisories and guidelines here: MakeMyTrip G20 Summit Traffic Advisories for your journeys on 8th to 10th Sept within and outside of Delhi-NCR. So, if you must step out to reach Delhi Airport, Delhi railway stations, and more, do refer to this link to plan better. #G20Summit.”
In response, the Delhi Police expressed its gratitude to the company for sharing its traffic advisory on the microsite, acknowledging their assistance in disseminating accurate information to facilitate smooth travel in Delhi during the G20 Summit.
This cooperative effort comes after a recent disagreement between MakeMyTrip and the Delhi Police regarding an email sent by the travel firm that falsely claimed Delhi would be “shut” during the G20 Summit. The Delhi Police promptly clarified that movement restrictions would be limited to the New Delhi district and requested MakeMyTrip to retract the email and issue a clarification.
The 18th G20 Summit is scheduled to take place in the national capital on September 9 and 10, marking the culmination of a series of G20 processes and meetings held throughout the year among ministers, senior officials, and civil societies.
During the summit, establishments in the New Delhi area, including Bharat Mandapam in Pragati Maidan, will remain closed to the public. Specific areas like Dhaula Kuan, Khan Market, Janpath, and Bhikaji Cama Place have been designated as “sensitive areas,” where movement will be regulated but markets will not be shut. Additionally, Cloud kitchens and delivery services will not be allowed in the New Delhi area during the summit. However, essential services such as grocery stores, ATMs, and medical stores will remain open within the regulated zone.
MakeMyTrip’s support in displaying G20 Summit traffic advisories aims to assist travelers and residents in navigating the city smoothly during the summit while ensuring the dissemination of accurate and timely information.
