Maharashtra has levied restrictions for travellers from Goa, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi, and Kerala. The state government has made it mandatory for travellers from the five states to carry a negative RT-PCR COVID-19 test report not older than 72 hours.
Right now Maharashtra and Kerala have some of the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
These restrictions refer to passengers travelling to Maharashtra by flights and trains. As per instructions, travellers coming via trains must get their COVID test done 96 hours prior to their journey, and passengers entering Maharashtra through flights must get tested 72 hours before their time of departure. Carrying the test results is mandatory at both airports and railway stations. Failing to do so will result in the management screening you at railway station, or airports.

However, the tests and hospital expenses will be the patients’ responsibility.
