Bhubaneswar: In view of lockdown due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the Commissionerate Police has decided to issue epass (online pass) for emergency workers and people having urgent work.

The Commissionerate Police cancelled issuing vehicle passes after huge crowds were seen in front of the police stations in Bhubaneswar.

“We are cancelling process of issuing passes to emergency workers as too many people are congregating and social distance cannot be maintained. Please use your I Card for the moment. We will introduce an IT Platform by tomorrow to automate the process of issue of vehicle passes,” tweeted Twin City Commissioner of Police Sudhanshu Sarangi.

 “Those who need to travel due to medical or other emergencies will be allowed if there is a patient or medical paper,” said the tweet.
