New guidelines for inter-state travel: There seems to be a hike in cases of COVID-19 in the state since the Unlock 1.0 was implemented. It has also come to the notice of the state government that certain persons from hotspots (under the system of free movement) traveled outside after COVID testing.
Before the reports were received (which came out to be positive), they were somewhere out of the state spreading threat to wherever they go. Alarmed by this, the concerned authorities have come up with a new set of guidelines for those traveling in and out of state.
Yesterday the government of Rajasthan proclaimed that the interstate movement will be guarded in order to contain the spread of COVID-19 cases in the state. According to the newly listed guidelines issued by the Home Department, all persons going out of the state will be required to obtain a pass for travel from the district collector and Superintendent of Police.
There is a check post service at various borders for those traveling by road. People commuting will undergo screening, verification of pass/IDs
Those Commuting By Train/Flight
Special counters will be set up at airports, railway stations, bus stops to proffer on the spot passes after due verification of IDs. Only those with prior reservations will be exempted to travel via flight, train or buses as issued in the new guidelines for inter-state travel. Apart from this, those with emergencies like death, accident in family or hospitalization will be permitted.
The same guidelines listed by the ministry of home affairs for the stranded Indians, will be followed for those arriving in the state through international flights. Those arriving by domestic flights, trains, buses will be doubly screened.
Rajasthan is the fifth adversely affected state in the country in terms of coronavirus tally. After Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, and Gujarat.
We urge you to stay home as much as you can. The phase of Unlock does not indicate that the pandemic is in control. Keep up with all the safety measures and wash your hands again and again.
Stay safe, spread positivity and pray for better days
