India commemorates its Independence Day on 15 August. Travellers are reminded that days of national significance can provide an opportunity for terrorist groups to stage an attack. In the past, terrorists have targeted areas frequented by tourists including hotels, markets, tourist sites, transport hubs and public transport networks and religious sites. In December 2016, the US, UK and Israel issued warnings of terror threats to locations including resorts and beaches. Maintain a high level of vigilance in public places. Take local security arrangements into consideration when deciding where to visit. Monitor the media for developments that may affect your safety and security.The level of our advice has not changed. We continue to advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in India overall. Higher levels apply in some parts of India.
