We are laying a red carpet for all global companies to come and establish their presence in India.

"All monuments were allowed to open from July 06 but Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) are very clear, everyone will have to ensure safety and follow local administration guidelines." "If a monument is in red zone and state government disagrees to it, our approval doesn't mean it will open. State government's consent is essential."

"I have requested them to go to the north-east and Himalayan states. We will coordinate. I have told them to file application, we will form a strategy. If they apply online, we might permit them within 15-20 days."
