During the lockdown, travel by air, rail and road will not be allowed.

Mass gatherings stay suspended as usual.

The consolidated revised guidelines would not apply in containment zones, as demarcated by States/ UTs/ District administration

Post April 20, 2020 after assessment will be made at various states and UTs, “the activities permitted under the revised guidelines, from April 20, 2020 will not be allowed within the containment zones as demarcated by States/ UTs/ District Administrations, as per the guidelines of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHF&W).
