To curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has extended the nationwide lockdown till May 31.
Depending on the graph of coronavirus some restrictions might be lifted after May 31.
The main aim of lockdown is to curb the spread of coronavirus by maintaining social distancing, and restricting the movement of people from one place to another.
Since essential services are operating in India, state governments have started an e-pass system. Using the e-pass or movement pass, one can provide these facilities.
Through e-pass, one can provide the essential services like medical care, health care, chemists, police and security personnel, media services, electricity and water department, animal fodder and ration shops.
