Now, no travel pass to cross the Delhi-Haryana border

No travel pass is required to cross the Delhi-Haryana border from Monday, the Haryana government has announced. "The traffic movement is completely smooth between Gurugram and Delhi, and Faridabad and Delhi and so is elsewhere," a senior police official said. The Delhi-Haryana border was opened as per the Central government guidelines and no pass would be required, he added. Massive traffic jams were witnessed on the borders of Haryana and the national capital on Friday as the former restricted the entry of motorists, except essential service providers and e-movement pass holders, owing to a spike in the coronavirus cases.

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij had blamed Delhi for a spike in patients owing to the free movement of people.

He said the cases reported in Gurugram, Faridabad, Sonepat and Jhajjar districts that are located in the National Capital Region had been spiking despite certain restrictions.

Meanwhile, the Haryana government on Sunday decided to extend the lockdown in the containment zones till June 30.

It was also decided to open the restricted areas in a phased manner in accordance with the provisions of the National Disaster Management Act and guidelines issued by the District Magistrate and the departments concerned.

These decisions were taken at a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar with senior officers here.

It was decided in the meeting that the District Magistrates could impose restrictions in the areas in their jurisdiction under Section 144 of the CrPC on the movement of individuals from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., except for essential services.

It was decided that there will be no restriction on the interstate and inter-district movement of persons and goods.

In addition, the shops will remain open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
