Centre Stops States, UTs From Imposing Lockdown Outside Containment Zone

New Delhi:29/8/20: With an aim to allow more activities to open up across the country, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) today said States and Union Territories cannot impose any local lockdown outside the containment zones without prior consultation with the Central Government.

While issuing guidelines for the Unlock 4, the MHA said States and Union Territories shall not impose any local lockdown at the State/district/sub-division/city/ village level outside the containment zones without the permission of the Centre.

There shall be no restriction on inter-State and intra-State movement of persons and goods. No separate permission approval/ e-permit will be required for such movements, the guidelines added.

Shops will need to maintain adequate physical distancing among customers. MHA will monitor the effective implementation of National Directives.
