Kanniyakumari makes e-pass mandatory

Kanniyakumkari district administration has made e-pass mandatory for those entering the district from other States and countries.

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting chaired by Collector M. Aravind on Friday in the wake of the rising COVID-19 cases across Tamil Nadu. According to the Collector, those coming to Kanniyakumari from other States and countries from Saturday (April 10) onwards should obtain e-pass by applying online at eregister.tnega.org. To make this measure more effective, traffic would be allowed only through the arterial roads passing through bordering villages while traffic via interior roads had been banned. Surveillance on the inter-State traffic would be intensified. Public could inform officials about illegal entry of outsiders or strangers by calling 04652 – 231077, Mr. Aravind said.

He also said COVID-19 care centres had been established at Scott Christian College and SLB Higher Secondary School.
