To curb the spread of COVID-19 in Maharashtra, the Government has announced new restrictions. The government has imposed night curfews and weekend lockdowns throughout the state. But the curfew has created a lot of confusion between travellers and travel agencies. Are you wondering if you can travel within the state during curfew hours? Can you travel from Mumbai to Pune at night? Here’s all you need to know.
No Travel Restrictions On Private Vehicles Moving Out Of The City
There are no travel restrictions for people moving out of the district or state in private vehicles. So if you have to travel from Mumbai to Pune during curfew hours, you can do so. However, intra-district state transport buses would ply. Goods transport and agriculture-related services will also be allowed to run.
