MHA : Clarification of movement during night curfew period
Clarification of movement during night curfew period
D.O. No. 40-10 / 2020-DM-I(A)
12th June, 2020

Dear Chief Secretary,

Kindly refer to Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) Guidelines for Phased Reopening (Unlock 1) issued vide Order No. 40-3/ 2020- DM-I(A) dated 30.05.2020.


2. The said guidelines provide that movement of individuals shall remain strictly prohibited between 9 PM and 5 AM throughout the country, except for essential activities. It has come to notice that some States/ UTs are also restricting movement of persons and vehicles plying on highways between 9 PM and 5 AM, which is hindering their smooth passage .

3. I would like to clarify that the purpose of restricting movement of individuals, except for essential activities, between 9 PM and 5 AM, is primarily intended to prevent congregation of persons and to ensure social distancing. The restriction does not apply to instances of loading/ unloading of goods (as part of supply chains and logistics); buses carrying persons and trucks and goods carriers plying on State and National Highways; or persons travelling to their destinations  after disembarking from buses, trains and flights.


4. Accordingly, States/ UTs are advised not to prevent such movement as mentioned above. Necessary instructions to this effect may please be issued to the district and local authorities.

With regards,
Yours sincerely,

(Ajay Bhalla)
        The  Chief Secretaries of all  States
