The Centre had extended the nationwide lockdown till 30th June, planning to reopen the country in a phased manner. As per the Ministry of Home Affairs, most of the activities that were banned earlier will be allowed now across states, outside the containment zones.

What Else?

The state had initially allowed inter-state movement of buses, except in the containment zones. However, due to the unprecedented surge in the coronavirus cases by about 300 after the easing down of restrictions, the state government has revised the plans. As per the new guidelines, every person moving out of the state needs to get a travel pass from the district collector and Superintendent of Police. If anyone gets a permit from a Deputy SP, a sub-divisional magistrate or the local police station, the person must communicate the same to the SP or district collector. Like Rajasthan, Delhi too opened up with its own set of guidelines.
