Pune: E-passes on Hold; Inter-district Travel Allowed Only for Emergency
Pune district authorities have put e-pass requests on hold for those who wish to travel to 8 districts including Satara, Sangli and Kolhapur among others. However, this decision will not cover the medical emergencies. Deputy Commissioner of Police Bachchan Singh said, "Only in the case of death or severe medical emergencies are the passes being given consent." This implies travellers with personal and business reasons will be in a fix.
