BENGALURU:

In a search for new ways to control the spread of Covid-19, the state cabinet discussed the idea of a ban on all international flights into the city till March 31.

However, briefing the press later, Minister for Medical Education K Sudhakar clarified that the state government does not have any jurisdiction to impose such a ban as such powers are vested in the DGCA and come under the jurisdiction of the Union government.

He added that Karnataka had made a request to this effect, but would abide by any decision taken by the Union government in this regard.
