The Rajasthan government on Wednesday decided to regulate interstate movement in view of the spike in Covid-19 cases in the state. The arrangement will be in place for a week.

All movement to and from the state will be regulated. No person can enter the state without a ‘No Objection Certificate’ (NOC) from the state or leave without a pass, Director General Of Police, Law and Order, M L Lather said in an order.

Rajasthan is the fifth worst-affected state in the country in terms of coronavirus tally after Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi and Gujarat.

The western state reported 123 new coronavirus infections till 10:30 am on Wednesday, taking its total count to 11, 368, as per the state health department data, ANI reported. This includes 256 deaths from the disease.

Directions were issued to all range IGs, SPs, commissioners and deputy commissioners in this regard, officials said.

Only those carrying a NOC from a district magistrate or SP, should be allowed to enter the state or those with required passes would be allowed to leave, he said.

Lather also directed that check posts be put up at the international airport, railway stations and bus stands. This arrangement will be in force for the next seven days.

The order to regulate inter-state movement is an amendment to a previous order on Wednesday morning which said Rajasthan was sealing its borders with neighbouring states.

The clarification issued later said that the ‘seal’ should be read as ‘regulated’.
