Delhi is all set to host the 18th G20 Summit on September 9 and 10. With set-ups at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport to now issue traffic advisories, the capital is gearing up for this event. The Delhi Traffic Police has established a special “virtual helpdesk” in an effort to ensure that residents of Delhi may travel around the national capital without experiencing any difficulties during the next G20 Summit.

In the New Delhi district, where only residents and those employed in critical services will be permitted access after producing identification proof, the traffic restrictions associated with the G20 Summit will be very tight.
