Assam government on Wednesday announced that the inter-district movement of citizens will be allowed on July 30-31, 2020.
State chief secretary Kumar Sanjay Krishna, who is also the chairman of the executive committee of the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), issued an order in this regard on Wednesday.
The new order has been issued in continuation of his earlier order (No ASDMA.24/2020/Part-1/93) issued on July 18, the chief secretary said.
In the new order, Krishna said the “inter-district movement of citizens is allowed” on July 30-31, 2020 in Assam, “subject to the strict compliance of COVID-19 regulations as detailed in the various guidelines” of the state government.
“The above permission is allowed except in containment zones after following social distancing protocols,” the order said.
As per the earlier order issued on July 18, the chief secretary said all inter-district movement of individuals would be strictly barred with effect from July 22, 2020, until further orders.
In that order, chief secretary Krishna also said: “For medical and last rite emergencies, movement shall be allowed only with written permission from the deputy commissioner of the originating district.”
However, the movement of goods shall continue uninterrupted, the order had said.
“This order does not include exemptions as detailed in order No. ASDMA.24/2020/Part-1/92” issued on July 18, the chief secretary said in the order.
