“Please be advised that due to the anticipated farmers' protest at different Delhi borders starting on 13.02.2024, there will be traffic diversions in effect. For commercial vehicles, traffic restrictions and diversions will be implemented starting from 12.02.2024. We recommend planning your trip accordingly and staying informed about potential delays and alternative routes.

Travelers are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and stay updated on the situation for any changes or impacts on their travel plans.

Meanwhile, Section 144 has been imposed, barricades and barbed wires have been put up, and traffic advisories have been issued by Delhi and Haryana authorities in anticipation of the farmers' 'Delhi Chalo' protest scheduled for Tuesday, February 13. The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha have announced that over 200 farmer unions will be heading to Delhi to urge the Centre to address their demands. These demands include the enactment of a law to ensure a minimum support price (MSP) for crops.
