Masks are no longer required in private vehicles in Delhi as of Monday.

The Delhi government lifted all COVID restrictions on Friday following a meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority. The night curfew has been lifted and all schools in the capital have been asked to resume physical classes from April. The fine for not wearing a mask in public has also been reduced from Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 500.

Wearing masks will not be mandatory for Delhi residents travelling in private four-wheeled vehicles, the Delhi government announced on February 26, 2022, Saturday. This new rule will be applicable from February 28, 2022, Monday.

The District Disaster Management Authority, after reviewing all relevant facts of the criminal issue related to non-compliance with the COVID protocol for wearing masks in public, has decided that not wearing masks in all public places constitutes an offense. The penalties under this provision of the aforementioned notice will not apply to people who are traveling together in private quads from February 28, 2022, "the order said.

At the peak of the pandemic, the government said that private cars on the road were also included in the definition of public places, so even one passenger in the private car was required to wear a mask.

Restrictions were eased earlier this month when individual drivers were exempted from wearing masks inside their cars.

Restrictions were eased as the pandemic situation in Delhi improved day by day, with 440 cases reported on Saturday. The positivity rate has almost dropped to 0.83%. After detailed discussions with medical experts, we have decided to remove all COVID-19 related restrictions in Delhi on February 28, 2022.

While adhering to government guidelines, I remain compliant with India and ensure compliance with COVID appropriate behavior, including wearing masks and maintaining social distancing, " Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal tweeted after Friday's meeting.

However, some restrictions still apply, such as market permits at least once a week in the municipality. The upper limit of 200 people at weddings and the ban on visitors to religious sites were not lifted.
