Lockdown 3.0- What is Permitted and What is Not ?

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) Of India has further extended the nationwide lockdown on Friday  to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus by another two weeks or 14 days. This will be the second   addition to the already extended lockdown due to end on May 4 as announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The decision to further extend  the lockdown  was taken based on risk-profiling of various districts across the country. The MHA has also issued some specific guidelines to regulate different economic activities during this period in the nation.

Movement of those persons by air, rail and road is allowed for select purposes, and for purposes as permitted by MHA.
  • Movement of all individuals, for all nonessential activities, shall remain strictly prohibited between 7 pm to 7 am.
  • Irrespective of the zones, persons above 65 years of age, persons with co-morbidities, pregnant women, and children below the age of 10 years, shall stay at home, except for meeting essential requirements and for health purposes
