Travel Update: HiWay Cabs Resumes Operations

The nationwide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been extended for the fourth time in the nation. There has been some major relaxation in the lockdown rules though.

India entered this 4th stage of the nationwide lockdown on 18th May 2020. As of now, the lockdown is stated to last for another 2 weeks until any formal notice is released by the Central Government of India.

The guidelines announced by the Home Ministry clearly state that with the consent of the states and union territories involved, the interstate movement of vehicles is now permitted.

A lot of state governments have asked for a complete shutdown in the containment zone, allowing small businesses to restart. Resuming educational institutions & large social gatherings is still prohibited though.

The Centre has also decentralized its stringent guideline and has granted the decision of dictating the regulations pertaining to the various activities to be allowed in the non-containment zones to the states to decide for themselves. However, a close watch will be kept on all commenced and ongoing activities in every state. Individuals in the containment zones are not allowed to move around other than for reasons such as medical emergencies and/or to maintain the supply of essential goods and services.
