Special arrangements have also been made for the sitting of MPs to follow social distancing. Entry to the premises will be done only on the basis of negative investigation report of Kovid-19. A provision has been made that the inquiry report should not be earlier than 72 hours before the commencement of the session. The entire campus will be cleaned again and again. Along with parliamentary documents, arrangements have also been made to sanitize the cars and shoes of MPs.
Both houses made new arrangement for sitting of MPs
In order to follow social distancing both houses have prepared new seating arrangements for their members. MPs will be allowed to address sitting and wearing masks to minimize the risk of spreading the infection. Along with this, it has also been decided that the air conditioner (AC) air will be replaced six times every day. DRDO will also provide a multi utility kit to all MPs.
