At the instruction of the headquarters of the Tourism and Touring Organization, tour operators to India are not permitted to advertise or arrange excursions to the Lotus [Baha’i] Temple in New Delhi.

Obviously, failure to adhere to the contents of this directive by the company/office would result in the offender’s being referred to the High Commission for a decision and the offenders would be dealt with seriously.
