Taking cognizance on the rising Covid cases and applying stricter restrictions to check the COVID-19 Maharashtra police on Friday reintroduced the e-pass system for inter-state and inter-district travel.
For interstate and inter-district emergency travel, you can apply for an E-Pass at http://covid19.mhpolice.in . You can also walk in at the nearest Police Station for assistance.
We urge all citizens to apply for an E-Pass only in the case of extreme emergencies.
Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pandey said, “The e-pass system has been reintroduced from Friday and citizens should use it in case of absolute emergency.”
Fresh restrictions on travel, attendance in offices and wedding functions announced by the Maharashtra government came into force on Thursday night. The state, which has facing an unprecedented surge in coronavirus cases, was already under severe restrictions since April 14 and the fresh “lockdown- like” curbs were announced on Wednesday.
“Those who do not have access to online e-pass system, can visit the nearest police station to procure it. The personnel at the police station will help in filling the form and issue the e-pass,” Pandey said.
This is only meant for the personal use of citizens to facilitate their journey in emergency, he said. Maharashtra on Thursday reported 67,013 new coronavirus cases
