The government has relaxed
the ongoing strict lockdown since August 10. From August 11, public transport
will be able to carry 100% of its passengers' capacity.
However, in case of public transport by road, the local administration (Divisional Commissioner in City Corporation area and Deputy Commissioner at district level) will be able to introduce half of the total number of transports per day in consultation with the law enforcement agencies, concerned departments/agencies, owners and workers' organizations.
This information has been given in the notification issued by the cabinet division on Sunday (August 8).
According to the notification, public transport/vehicles will be able to carry the same number of passengers on the road, rail, and waterways.
The Cabinet Division has issued a circular relaxing the existing strict lockdown to keep the country's economic activities afloat and considering the overall situation.
