“The email sent out by @makemytripcare falsely claims that Delhi is closed from September 08 to 10th, 2023. In wake of the #G20Summit, there will be restrictions in New Delhi District. We request @makemytrip to retract their email & issue a clarification,” tweeted Delhi Police along with an image.

In its post on X, Delhi Police informed people that the movement will be restricted only in the New Delhi district. Only bonafide residents of the area will be permitted to travel. Furthermore, all essential services will remain operational throughout the G20 Head of States and Governments Summit.


Here’s what the Delhi Police tweeted:

After the tweet gained traction, MakeMyTrip shared a reply to the tweet. The travel company wrote, “We acknowledge the concern. What our email meant was that Delhi educational institutions, banks, financial institutions, and most offices will be closed and that movement will be restricted in the New Delhi district. The email may have caused a misunderstanding and is open to misinterpretation. We are immediately sending a clarification to the same email base.”

In its clarification mail to its customers, the company wrote, “We wish to clarify that essential services in New Delhi district will remain open, and although the movement would be restricted, bonafide residents of the area will be allowed.”

Another added, “MakeMyTrip should be penalised for sharing misleading information.”

“Appreciate your prompt response,” expressed a third.

A fourth shared, “Isn’t this a case of duping? This company should be booked. Misinterpretation and misinformation to book profit.”
