GUWAHATI: In a relief for the people stuck in various parts of the state, the Assam government has decided to open a window of 3 days for inter district Movement.

Addressing a press meet, Assam State Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that from 25 - 27 April, people will be allowed to commute back to their respective natives.

Further, if a citizen owns his own car and got stuck at a different district due to lockdown, will be allowed to commute without any hassle by taking prior permission from the respective Deputy Commissioners.

Starting from April 25, inter district movement of patients will also be facilitated. Such people will be issued to and fro passes to the hospital. 

However, strict action will be taken against those vehicles plying with passes issued for patients but without patient on board.

Additionally, patients without personal vehicle may contact 104 for ambulance service. 

Migrant workers and students will also be allowed to commute during this 3 day period.

For those without personal vehicle, the government of Assam will start plying ASTC buses on designated routes. 

All such travelers are to go through medical test immediately after reaching home and shall remain in 14 days quarantine if suggested.
