Govt has fixed rates as per below image for paid institutional quarantine. Free option is also available. But there's widespread allegations that cheaper options are often sold out forcing people to take expensive option or hotel staff demanding more than pre-fixed rates.

Things to note:
  • Institutional Quarantine is usually assigned in destination district, not at border
  • Home Quarantine violation may result in FIR and or Institutional Quarantine- Tracking may be done remotely via mobile phone tower signal
  • There was no stamp on the hand or seal on the house when I entered on June 10th, but this may change depending on local authorities and latest rules.
