Your Definitive Guide To Travel, Driving, E-passes During Lockdown 4.0

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the augment of Lockdown 4.0 on May 17. It is the third extension of the ongoing nation-wide lockdown in effect from March 24. However, the new lockdown comes with new rules and will not be as strict as the previous ones. Said to continue till May 31, the new lockdown will ease up on the restrictions to revive the plummeting economy, keeping in mind the safety protocol, of course.

The public has been in the dark about whether traveling and/or usage of private and public transport is an option in the lockdown. Amidst the confusion, most people don’t know the actual rules. We bring you all there is to know about driving during the lockdown, e-passes, and travel; your definitive guide for traveling during the lockdown!

Private Vehicles: Using Cars, Bikes, and Scooters

The use of private vehicles has been allowed since Lockdown 3.0 itself. Cars, bikes, and scooters are allowed, only and if only you aren’t in a containment zone. The public is allowed to use private vehicles in all (red, green, and orange) zones without any restriction. However, they must abide by time constraints, as the traffic movement is restricted between 7 PM and 7 AM for all but essential service providers.

Public Transport: Buses, Taxis, and Autorickshaws

The public transport services like buses, auto-rickshaws, and taxi services will be operational except for the Metro services. All domestic and international air travel of passengers will remain closed but with an exception for domestic medical services, where domestic air ambulance will be permitted.

Interstate Travel

In what seems to be a welcome change, interstate travel is allowed during lockdown 4.0! A huge step, considering the risks, is one of the biggest changes in the rules of the lockdown. However, travel is only possible if the source and destination state are in agreement with the journey. This can be possible without a travel pass but it is recommended to apply for an e-pass. The two-state governments involved must be okay with the onset of traffic within the states.

To get an e-pass a person will need to visit the respective website by the state government of the state they want to travel to.
