Kindly suggest.
I am not sure how it works at other checkposts, but here towards chittoor, all that they need is the RD number printed on the E pass. I would suggest, apply for Karnataka epass itself and proceed to the checkpost. Hopefully it should not be an issue.
The Karnataka E pass gets approved within few hours and does not have any time validity as such.

If everything goes well, I am planning to drive from Puducherry to Bangalore this weekend.

Did anyone recently enter Bangalore through Attibele? How was the experience at the Toll Plaza?

Is this the only thread related to inter-state travel during COVID-19 lockdown?

Hi Guys,

Need some help as I need to travel urgently from Pune to Ranchi.
In the #Unlock2.0 circular issued, its mentioned that "there shall be no restriction on inter-State and intra-State movement of person and goods"

Interstate travel with the Covid-19 restrictions-screenshot-20200630-10.19.16-am.png

Does that mean we no longer need e-pass (permit) to travel out of state? (of course for a valid reason)

Thanks!

I don't think so. Though Central Govt has mentioned that we don't need any e-permit for inter-state travel of person/goods, the State Govts can still decide what restrictions they need to impose within their state.

For example, Tamil Nadu has mandated e-pass even for inter-district travel within the state. It is already in force now and will continue after July 1 too.

Please check the restrictions imposed by the states through which you travel before you start. Also, please note that they also change the restrictions from time to time.

I am sure that lot of people would have travelled recently (KA's Seva Sindhu application always shows 0 slot for the next 1 week to enter Attibele checkpost).

It would help future travelers like me, if they can share their experience in this thread. Thanks in Advance.

Hi BHpians,

Need some info for travelling from Pune to Chennai.

Today while I was trying to get an Epass from TN. Pass requesting dates is given for 4 days, does it mean that I have to travel to TN in those 4 days or do I have to return from TN after the 4th day?

Also if I select Vellore as a district where TN border is crossed, the next option is "Place where TN border is crossed and it has given me below 3 options

1.Bathalapalli Check Pos
2.Christianpet Check Pos
3.Serkadu Check Pos

I am not aware of which check post comes when I go via Vellore, if anyone has done this route earlier, can you please let mw know the check post that I have to select or other alternate route, please suggest

Planning to travel on 3rd July

Cheers
Joshua

Pass requesting date opens a small calendar pop-up. Right now, since today is 30-Jun, it shows only upto July 4. You can click on next arrow and select the future dates too.

It is not clear from where you are entering Vellore district. My suggestion would be to check the Google Maps for the entry point. The checkpost would be named around the village/town that is located at the entry point.

Mod Note - Please quote ONLY the relevant bits of a post. Quoting a full, long post inconveniences our mobile readers. Thanks!

It said "maximum allowed days -4*" , does it mean I have to travel to Destination in those 4 days or should leave the destination on the 4th day.

If you are reaching Chennai and staying there, you only need to select the "Date from" which would be 3-July in your case. If you want to return after visiting Chennai, then it allows only upto 4 days (until 6-July) in the "Date to" field.

You need to plan accordingly.

Hi BHPians

Let me start with some background, I was lucky to come back to my family in Delhi from Mumbai before the lockdown was imposed in march, as i didn't anticipate the lockdown situation all my belongings are in my rented accommodation in Mumbai. My landlord told me that i have to empty the apartment in two weeks i.e before 15 July. So i have no choice but to go there and collect all my belongings including some important documents. The luggage is quite a lot so I cant take everything back in the flight also keeping social distancing in mind i will be more comfortable Driving to Mumbai and pack all my belongings and coming back to Delhi. If i want to make a round trip from Delhi to Mumbai
What is the feasibility considering the Unlock 2.0.

1. Is it possible to cross the state border?

2. Which state, I know Maharashtra has restrictions, still have travel restrictions on the way?

3. What passes do I need if i wanna do this journey and leave Mumbai in 24 hours?

4. What will be the quarantine situation when i come back to Delhi?

Hoping for some solution.
Thanks in advance

Let me answer your queries based on the homework I did for my inter-state travel (PY-KA).

1. Every state have implemented their own restrictions now. Please check the state borders you need to cross. In south, KA-KL border is closed as of today.

2. Same as point 1.

3. Typically, you would need round-trip (exit-entry) pass from your source state, transit (onward and return) pass from the states you are crossing and round-trip (entry-exit) pass from your destination.

4. This can vary from time to time. Please check the latest quarantine rule just before your return.

Since the govts are changing the rules very frequently, you have to be on top of it until you complete your trip.

All the Best for your round-trip and please post your experience after your trip.

Vin@y, it doesn't work that way, I'm assuming that those 4 days are for reaching the destination, Not sure though. The request for Epass got rejected few time from TN side, So planning to apply from MH to TN, Lets see how it goes.

I have tried your suggestion and it asked me to enter the other date too

Sorry to hear that. I think those 4 days (max) are meant for the stay (you enter TN on the first date and exit TN on the second date). For my TN transit, I applied the same date in those two fields and it got approved.

All the Best for your MH epass. But, please check whether it will be accepted by TN. My understanding is that every state we travel to/through requires its own epass.

I have requested the pass from MH its in processing status now. Do I need to take the transit pass from KA or not is the question because, few days ago when I checked it said, no pass required if travelling though KA, looks like I have to check again.

The rules keep changing every day and they are not updated frequently I feel.

Looks like we need to have a new discussion thread on Epass.

Cheers
Josh
