With Delhi-Haryana Borders Sealed, Here’s What You Need To Travel In Case Of An Emergency

Border rules between Delhi and Haryana have become more severe after the state home Minister Anil Vij stated that Haryana residents working in Delhi had become carriers of coronavirus. NCR cities like Sonipat and Faridabad have thus started regulating movements from Delhi as per the updated guidelines. Read on to know the details.

Who All Can Cross The Borders Now?

Taking into account the spike in the coronavirus cases in Delhi NCR, the authorities are allowing a very limited section of people across the NCR borders now. The new rules are as follows:

  • Heath workers and essential service providers will be able to pass the borders with identity cards.
  • Journalists will also need to show their identity cards to travel from Delhi to NCR, and vice-versa, only for coverage.
  • Government officials will be allowed inter-state travel. Officials who are working in Delhi but are residents of Faridabad need to arrange for accommodation in Delhi so that they do not commute between Delhi and Faridabad on a daily basis.
  • Checking across borders will be intensified.
  • The cops will stop all the vehicles and travellers will need to show movement passes and ID cards.

What Else?

As per a statement of the Delhi government, the high number of virus cases in Delhi is not due to Delhi’s doing but because of the large number of Indians coming back to India from abroad in February and March. The travellers belonged to different states and Delhi has taken care of them by quarantining them. The statement also added, “The life of every person in Haryana is as precious to us as any Delhiite”. Haryana has also cancelled buses to other states for immediately bringing back the migrant workers.
