One-time, one-day inter-district passes in Karnataka


The Karnataka State government has decided to allow one-day, one-time inter-district passes to facilitate people stranded in other cities to return home or for work. This will ensure the availability of employees/workers in industries for carrying out manufacturing/production activities.

This will be a one-time movement and the government would arrange buses for those in need but they should bear the expenses.


In tune with the Centre’s guidelines, the State government instructed all DCs to grant permission to allow business and industrial activities in their districts, outside of the containment zones.

The Union Ministry of Home Affairs on Wednesday issued orders allowing migrant workers, tourists, students, and other people stranded in different parts of the country to move to their respective destinations with certain conditions, giving a big relief to the distressed people.

Those arriving using the one-time passes would be screened with a thermal scanner. In case the person has a temperature above 37.5°C or is found to be suffering from cold, cough and breathlessness, he/she will be taken to a COVID-19 care center for isolation and further medical examination

Due to lockdown, migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists, students and other persons are stranded at different places. Therefore, in the exercise of the powers. conferred under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, the undersigned, in his capacity of Chairman. State Executive Committee, hereby order to permit movement of migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists, students and other persons who are stranded and also those people who want to go to their residence as a one-time measure from district to district with one-time one-day one-way passes issued by concerned Deputy Commissioners of the districts / Deputy Commissioner of Police in Commissioners for strict implementation.

It is reiterated that this would be a one-time one-day one-way pass for the individuals to reach their final destination.
