The UK (UK) decided to put India in this list because there were 103 cases of that COVID variant, which was first found in India.
India Added to UK Red List: The UK had put India in the ‘red list’ of travel in view of the serious condition of corona virus (India UK Red List Students). Since then, students and families of Indian origin have been facing confusion and tension. After putting India in this list, now only British and Irish citizens can enter Britain. Red Listed status is effective from 4 am Friday (UK Red List Countries India). Prior to this decision of the British, Prime Minister Boris Johnson also canceled his visit to India.
The effect of the Red List means that those who have the right to live in the UK legally will face additional economic burden upon entering there after Friday’s deadline. These people will have to spend 2 thousand pounds (Rs. 2,10,117) per person to be compulsorily quarantined in a hotel here and to conduct a COVID test. But the Indian community is confused about the new rules (Why is India on UK Red List). The British Parliament had decided to put India in this list on Monday because 103 cases of that COVID variant were found there, which were first found in India.

Students in trouble
