The administration has been issuing e-passes for people involved in essential services and activities, district Magistrate Suhas L Y said.
People in need of commuting from one place to another for essential work — like going to hospitals or to get medicines — can apply for the e-pass.
Application can be done online, and there is no need to go anywhere physically. To apply, documents with picture like Aadhar or PAN card and GST-related papers (for commercial units) will be required, a PTI report said quoting administration officials.
One will need this pass for movement within the district as well as the state till the time the lockdown is in place. It will also be required when someone is seeking to travel out of the state.
One can apply for the e-pass on rahat.up.nic.in or rahat.up.nic.in/.
