New Delhi, June 1
The first day of the Central government’s month-long “Unlock-I” brought in confusion and harassment, as border-crossing woes continued to haunt commuters in the National Capital Region.
The Delhi Government on Monday decided to seal the Capital’s borders for a week in the wake of the increased cases of coronavirus, while the district administrations in Ghaziabad and Noida also announced that their borders with neighbouring states would remain closed. The decisions were so sudden that people were caught unawares, leading to massive traffic jams on the road linking Delhi with Ghaziabad and Noida. The Ministry of Home Affairs in its guidelines has allowed free movement of people, both inter-state and intra-state, saying there would be no need to procure permit to move around the country. It, however, mentioned that the local administration, based on the assessment of the situation, could take a decision to restrict the movement of people, which had to be publicised in advance.
The sealing of borders today resulted in chaos as many people reside in one part of the NCR and work in the other. Most of the offices, including those of the Central government, are now open, but people are finding it difficult to commute.
