The Tamil Nadu government has announced that E-Pass will be granted for all those who apply.
The Tamil Nadu government had announced on Friday that travelling E-Pass will be provided for
all those residents who apply for it. The travelling E-Pass will be provided for the applicants who
produce their adhaar card details and mobile number. The applicants also have to submit an
application in the online portal available for applying E-Pass. They also announced that the
E-Pass will be generated and dispatched immediately from the 17th of August, 2020 onward.
They have also asked the people to apply for the E-Pass only if there is a genuine need for it.
This was decided because of the delay in generating the travel E-Pass and also because a lot
of travel E-Pass applications were rejected. A lot of people complained about their E-Pass
application being rejected and that lead to this conclusion, favoring the people stranded in
different parts away from their family due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This ease in the E-Pass
generation and immediate dispatching of the same will now allow people to travel safely from
district to district or state to state in needs of emergency.
