With the rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths currently, e-passes have been given only for purposes like medical emergencies, deaths and weddings.

Meanwhile, the state government has clarified that the relaxation applies only for those wanting e-passes for inter-district travel within Tamil Nadu. While, for those coming in from other states and countries, the existing norms will continue. 

According to The News Minute report, a press statement stated that the Chief Minister has ordered the authorities to approve e-pass applications immediately for those who are applying with their phone numbers and details of Aadhaar card or ration cards to travel between districts for important work. Also, the new rule will come into force from August 17.  

Further urging people to use e-passes only for important work, the Chief Minister said that the current method of issuing e-passes with phone numbers has helped district authorities to keep track of those who travel between the districts and trace their contacts if they test positive for coronavirus.

Despite the ease of restrictions in connection to the pandemic, the lack of uniformity in e-pass rules has made domestic travel difficult.
