How to get a pass during the lockdown in Hyderabad?
The world is currently battling a deadly pandemic. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken steps to curb the spread of COVID-19 in India and extend the lockdown across the country till May 3. Depending on the graph of COVID-19 some restrictions may be lifted in the coming days.
Lockdown emphasizes maintaining social distance by limiting public movements in public places. However, since the required services are still operated in the country, these facilities can be availed using e-Pass or Movement Pass. This pass allows police and government surveillance to go outside their area or community.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mahender Reddy, The Director-General of Telangana Police, said that when people step out to buy essential items, they have to carry their proof of residence. This was to ensure that people did not move beyond their three-kilometer radius.
At a press conference on Monday, Reddy said, “The Telangana government extended the lockdown until May 7. Senior officials of the DGP’s office were involved in the strict implementation of the lockdown meeting.”
“From now on, people will have to carry their proof of residence. The police will check that no one is turning over a radius of three kilometers to buy the necessary essentials.
The e-Pass may be used to provide or provide necessary services, including medical care, health care, chemists, police and security personnel, media services, the Department of Power and Water, animal fodder, and ration shops.
If you wish to obtain any of these services, apply for an e-pass to your state using the Move Pass website listed below:
