Tour and travel agents in the national capital will now have to get themselves registered. Delhi Government has made registration mandatory for tour and travel agents, ahead of the Commonwealth Games scheduled for October.

"As of date, tour and excursion agents in Delhi are not registered," said Manpreet Singh, joint secretary, Delhi Government, Tourism Department, who said the new directive would help tourists. Singh said some guidelines had been framed registration would be done along these guidelines.

Agents will be required to submit their applications within two months, failing which they will be barred by the government.

Many tour operators and travel agents who are already recognised by the Centre are, however, unhappy with the directive to register with the state government.

Rajesh Mudgil, secretary of Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) said, “We are ready to go by the law. But if the agents and the operators who have been recognised by the central government have also been asked to get themselves registered, it is just a wastage of time and money.”
