A heads up to those planning to travel.

My brothers friend traveled from Mysore - Calicut last week and mentioned about huge queue at Muthanga checkpost.

The guideline that pass is not required and only acknowledgement of entry in the Covid Jagrata site along with the news of Bangalore lock down may have caused it.

It took him around 3 hours cross the check-post.

The situation has changed drastically since the lock down started. It took just 10 minutes for a friend who traveled 2 days back.

I traveled on 14th, reached near Muthanga around 3PM and crossed the last health check point at 8.30PM.

Since I was going to Kannur, there was another check point near Nedumpoyil and had to wait for 1:30 hours. Started from electronic city at 10AM and reached kannur at 2AM.

Yeah, 14th was mad traffic, being the last day before lock down. Things changed significantly from 15th.

To Kannur, You could have chosen via Manjeswaram. Though quite long, would have been quick with very less time at check posts and a smooth drive throughout on a NH. Many I know have taken that to Kannur.

Since you have traveled / know someone who traveled recently. Wanted to check regarding the pass acknowledgement part.

As per my understanding, its possible to get acknowledgement from Covid Jagrata site only based on the slots available. So in other words, one cannot just travel on the date they would like to.


My cousin is planning on traveling tomorrow, he had applied for pass last month and has got the same for tomorrow. Now, his parents who are in Bangalore also are keen on travelling with him to Calicut. However, the next available slots are shown only for next week. So in this case, can they apply for next available slot and travel with the cousin, in-spite of the date being different?

Yes. since July 1st, the dates in the pass does not matter. They are checking only the registration number in the pass and they will cross-check the regn number and number of passengers in their system. I know at least 10 people who have traveled on a date different (earlier) than what they had in the pass/registration.

Disclaimer: Not an official information/confirmation, but based on how it has been.

Thanks.
My cousin did Bangalore - Calicut on 22nd. As mentioned in earlier post, his parents were also planning on joining with a post dated acknowledgement.

However, the plan was dropped and it was just cousin and friend who did the trip, both of them had acknowledgement.

They started from Bangalore around 06.00 AM, crossed medical check-post at Muthanga around 01.30 PM. Check-post took around 15 minutes and then there was a similar wait for police convoy to be ready.

A friend did Bangalore - Kalpetta over the weekend.

Got the permit through Covid Jagrata site, was stopped at Muthanga medical camp for checkup. He was traveling with kid and wife. Those at medical center told that one of them will have to undergo covid testing (one from a car was the rule mentioned). So my friend underwent the test.

This seems to be a case since his destination is within Wayanad. For those going to other districts, its not done.

They been asked to remain in home quarantine for 14 days.

He had checked about the short / 7 day permit just out of curiosity. What he was informed is that, the approval process is the same as regular permit. However, once the health inspector of your destination area contact you, you need to inform that it will be short stay and its approved by the health inspector.
