Hello there. I and my parents are travelling to Mangalore tonight by bus to attend to a family emergency. Are auto rickshaws available near the KSRTC bus stand? I was worried about whether the curfew imposed by the Government has impacted these services in any way.

As of now, this was to be only for the weekend. It should be back to normal from this morning with few restrictions.

Now the question is, will the toll plaza workers listen to the motorists that the queue is longer then one hundred meters? Making rules is easy in India but not following them. Let's see how this goes.

Planning to travel this weekend Mangalore - Bangalore with family and car fully loaded with luggage and pets. Has anyone traveled of late and faced any issues especially with cops?

But how do you plan to travel? Inter district travel is not allowed yet unless all have permission.

I have a pending travel to M'lore from B'lore and waiting for this lockdown to be eased on 07/06. Do you have any valid reason for this travel?

Where do we get this 'permission'? Please share, if you know of any links/information.

I don't know this time around what the procedure is. Last time during lockdown got permission from AC office and while returning back, got same from SP office. To begin with you should check with your local police station.

Car of course but thought to take a chance since we are not certain how the situation is at the barricades. At the max we would be sent back.

Nothing alarming or serious, just wanted to reach the Bangalore home since we have to visit the bank and daughter's school orientation etc etc. The later plan is also to return back to Mangalore sometime next month once things are eased. So its gonna be an up and down trip

From what I know, restrictions are not as strict as last year. There are people who travel inter-districts between 6-10AM. Probably if you can reach Bangalore home before 10AM, should be less risk. However there are high chances of being stopped or car getting seized. Unless you have emergency or medical needs, I would not recommend travelling without Pass.

We are taking the plunge and traveling Saturday morning during the 6-10 window. We are keeping an office letter for laptop renewal, and some other nitty gritties to show the cops in case questioned. We did consult a few acquaintances who traveled when the lockdown was freshly imposed and they have showed an office letter to the cops and someone else mentioned their parents were unwell back home and hence the reason to travel, they were let to pass. In our case, the cops can notice two kids, two dogs and luggage and understand that we are not on a joyride. Also, the Seva Sindhu portal is not accessible. Where do i apply for an epass?

The ePass portal from D.K was different and not in Seva Sindhu last year. I haven't heard about ePass this time around. I would recommend you start earlier, so you can make it to Bangalore before 10.

There is no pass system this time around. My relative did travel from UDP to BLR 10 days back. He left at 2:30 am and reached BLR before the cut off time. Did not see cops nor were stopped anywhere through out the journey.

I heard same from few of my friends too. They did one way trip to Bangalore. While one was not stopped other was stopped but was let to go after finding reason valid. So if you can support your journey with valid reason and reach destination before 10AM, inter district should be ok.

Quoting myself- From June 7th there will be no restrictions on inter district and inter state movement as per new guidelines from Govt, please check official press release.
