A ‘strict lockdown’ is underway across the country to tackle COVID infection. Strict restrictions have been imposed on movement. Police have instructed to go out with ‘Movement Pass’ in case of emergency.

However, banks, factories, hospitals and emergency services are also opened during the lockdown. People of these professions were not obliged for ‘Movement Pass’, however, the police have taken action against many people – which has led to ‘misunderstandings’.

About this, the police headquarters informed Movement Pass is not required for the movement of “people of 18 professions”. They can come and go to the workplace just by showing their identity card.

Those who are exempt from the strict lockdown – 

1. Doctor
2. Nurse
