Maharashtra: E-pass system
reintroduced for emergency
travel during curbs
With stricter restrictions to check the COVID-19 spread coming
into force in Maharashtra, the state police on Friday reintroduced
the e-pass system for inter-state and inter-district travel in
"extreme emergency" situations, a top police official said.
Fresh restrictions on travel, attendance in offices and wedding
functions announced by the Maharashtra government came into
force on Thursday night. The state, which has facing an
unprecedented surge in coronavirus cases, was already under
severe restrictions since April 14 and the fresh "lockdown- like"
curbs were announced on Wednesday.
Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pandey said, "The e-pass system has
been reintroduced from Friday and citizens should use it in case
of absolute emergency."
People have to apply onhttps://covid19.mhpolice.in/ and submit
the necessary documents and mention the reason for their
extreme emergency travel.
"But those who do not have access to online e-pass system, can
visit the nearest police station to procure it. The personnel at the
police station will help in filling the form and issue the e-pass,"
Pandey said. Read More
