The Indian Embassy in Qatar tweeted on its official account that the arrangement has been extended and thanked the civil aviation authorities of Qatar and India.

This arrangement will enable Qatar Airways and Indian Airlines to fly from Doha to various Indian cities.
As of now India has restricted access for International flights into its airports and only allows air bubble flights from certain countries with which it has reached an agreement.
As per the earlier announcement by Indian authorities, flights from India to Qatar will carry the following passengers:
