Taking up issue of easing travel curbs for Indians with foreign countries, MEA Arindam Bagchi said.

The Centre on Thursday said it has been taking up with foreign governments the issue of easing travel restrictions for Indians in view of an improvement in the coronavirus situation in the country.

Indian students studying in institutions in China, Italy and several other countries have been stuck here in view of the travel restrictions.

"With the improvement in the Covid situation in India, we have been taking up with foreign countries the issue of easing travel restrictions for Indians. We believe that this is an important element towards economic recovery," Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said at a media briefing.

"There have been some positive steps in this direction and we would hope that more countries take steps to normalise the movement of people from India," he added.

Asked about the supply of COVID-19 vaccines by the United States to India, Mr Bagchi said the domestic vaccination programme has been continuing at a rapid pace and that New Delhi has been in touch with its partners on the possibility of import of vaccines.
