Locals in Mumbai are increasingly checking for tighter curbs in Maharashtra

Travellers from outstation are also not allowed to use local trains.

As tighter restrictions in Maharashtra were introduced on 23 April, Mumbai’s local train services were shut down to the general public and ID checks were stepped up on Friday.

Under the new restriction which came into force on Thursday at 8 pm, only government officials, health staff, persons in need of medical care and people with disabilities are permitted to travel by local trains. People previously considered as important employees in previous orders of government were not included in the amended list under the Break Chain programme of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government. This limitation is in effect until 7 a.m. on 1 May.

As previously announced, railways have restricted entry and departure points at stations to avoid crowding. The Central Railways had previously been preparing for the new restrictions and said train tickets would only be issued at the ticket counters during this time. All other booking methods such as ATVM, JTBS (Jan Sadharan Ticket Booking Seva) and UTS will remain disabled until future orders have been placed.

Travelers from trains beyond the station are also not allowed to use local trains.

It was the first time after 1 February that the number of Covid-19 infections in Maharashtra reduced local services in Mumbai. Following a ten-month partial suspension from March 2020, the suburban rail services resumed on 1 February, and cases began to increase after mid-February.

As Mumbai police rescued Mumbaikars because of the new restrictions on Twitter, they received various queries from local Mumbai services.

The state government has been seeking since February to stop lockdowns in the state because they threaten people’s livelihoods. In March-April, as the case of Covid-19 spiralled, the state began taking containment steps by announcing the incremental night curfews, weekend locks, Section 144 imposition, etc.

In its latest order, which was officially not referred to as a lockout, the government ordered local Mumbai tickets to be given only to public employees, medical personnel, medical staff and people with disabilities after reviewing their records.

Public buses also operate at 50% without standing passengers from today.
