He said that the travel regulation has been conveyed to the District Collectors of Palakkad and Thrissur districts in Kerala which share borders with Coimbatore district.

“We have requested the Kerala side to give enough publicity on the regulations so that people who travel to Coimbatore district carry e-pass,” he said.

The e-pass is also mandatory for people who travel from Kerala to Coimbatore district on two-wheeler, autorickshaw, four-wheeler including the driver. People who travel up to Walayar on KSRTC buses and enter Coimbatore district on TNSTC buses should also carry the e-pass.

Out of the 13 inter-State check posts in Coimbatore district, six are major check posts based at Walayar, Velanthavalam, Anaikatti, Anamalai, Valparai and Pollachi.

Joint teams the Health, the Revenue and the Police Departments will check compliance to the e-pass at all the check posts. People who do not carry the e-pass will be sent back.
