''Arogya Setu app is something I would suggest to everyone as it is an excellent contact-tracing app. There is nothing comparable to this app,'' he further said. 

Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Saturday said that the number of international passenger flights will be increased in the coming days.

''Arogya Setu app is something I would suggest to everyone as it is an excellent contact-tracing app. There is nothing comparable to this app,'' he further said. 

''If you have taken a test and your test report is negative, following you don't have any symptoms, so I believe there should be no need for quarantine. The Arogya Setu app is like a passport if your status on the app is green. Why should anyone want any quarantine,'' he added.

The minister said that he will put in place arrangements to make sure that people can able to travel to the airport without any issue.  

Borders between Delhi-Haryana and Delhi -Uttar Pradesh is the matter of the state governments and they will deal with it, he added.
