Lockdown 6 - Unlock 2 has been enforced from July 1, 2020. According to the guidelines enforced by the Home Ministry, interstate travel will not require an e-pass or separate permit. But due to the rising threat of coronavirus in certain states like Assam, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, the state governments here have restricted the movement of people and goods in certain hotspots other than the containment zones. But there are other states that have permitted inter state movement without the e-pass.

Some states to restrict travel in Unlock 2.0

In the Guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs on June 29, 2020 for the dos and don'ts of the unlock 2, it was stated: "States/UTs, based on their assessment of the situation, may prohibit certain activities outside the Containment zones, or impose such restrictions as deemed necessary. However, there shall be no restriction on inter-state and intra-state movement of persons and goods including those for cross land-border trade unter treaties with neighboring countries. No separate permission/approval/e-permit will be required for such movement."
