On Monday, the Tamil Nadu government also appointed 22 IAS, IPS and IFS officers as nodal officers for specific States over the movement of stranded persons to and from States and Union Territories concerned. According to a G.O. issued in this regard, they were to facilitate smooth movement of stranded persons across State borders as per SOPs and to co-ordinate with the nodal officers of other States and with district administration.
The officers are: Kakarla Usha (Andhra Pradesh), S.J. Chiru and R. Sudhan (Assam and the North East), Kumar Jayant and Najmal Hoda (Bihar), K. Srinivasan and Nihar Ranjan (Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand), C. Samayamoorthy (Odisha), T.P. Rajesh (West Bengal), Anil Meshram (Haryana), M. Sudha Devi (Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir), B. Chandramohan (Karnataka and Sikkim), Johny Tom Varghese and T. Ritto Cyriac (Kerala), Rajesh Lakhoni (Madhya Pradesh), Pooja Kulkarni (Maharashtra), Mangat Ram Sharma (New Delhi), Gagandeep Singh Bedi (Punjab), R.K. Jagenia (Rajasthan), N. Venkatesh (Telangana), Pinky Jowel (Uttar Pradesh) and Pradeep Yadav (Other States and Union Territories).
Natives of other States, stranded in Tamil Nadu owing to the COVID-19 lockdown, will be permitted to leave “on their own vehicles” from Tuesday. All such persons, who have registered themselves on the portal nonresidenttamil.org would get their e-passes for their vehicles and be allowed to cross the borders only during daytime.
“We would issue e-passes for vehicles for those who have registered online from midnight and allow vehicles to leave Tamil Nadu from Tuesday,” a senior official told The Hindu on Monday evening.
However, persons who intend to leave Tamil Nadu on a government-arrangement vehicle or special trains would have to wait for a few more days.
“Everyone who comes in from outside is screened and quarantined now”, says Dr Shivakumar M, Deputy Health Officer, BBMP. Regardless of your mode of transport, you’ll be screened upon arrival in Bengaluru. “If you come to Bengaluru by train, you’ll arrive at Majestic or Yeshwanthpur. You’ll be screened at the station itself. This involves filling up a self-reported form, temperature check, reporting of medical history, among other things,” says Shivakumar.
Based on screening, travelers are classified into Category 1 – symptomatic, or Category 2 – asymptomatic. Those under Category 1 are taken to Dedicated COVID Heathcare Centers (DCHC) for testing.
Those under Category 2 are put under institutional quarantine in designated COVID Care Centers (CCCs) – either paid hotels/hostels, or free government shelters at schools or kalyana mantapas (wedding halls).
Quarantining at one of the paid options can be an expensive affair. “The 5 start hotels can be from Rs. 3000-5000/day, the 3-star around Rs. 1500 and the budget ones from Rs. 750-1200. There is also a free option at kalyana mantapas, but the facilities like separate toilets are not there like in the paid accommodation,” says Shivkumara.
On Thursday, as the first Rajdhani from Delhi pulled into Majestic railway station, many travellers were taken by surprise when they were told that everyone on the train had to go through paid institutional quarantine in Bengaluru or go back to Delhi. Soon enough, 150-odd travellers sat on dharna and refused to go into quarantine, stating they hadn’t been informed about the rule beforehand.
The Health and Family Welfare Services Department has released a series of orders, circulars and advisories regulating inter-district, inter-state and international travel since early May. These rules have changed many times over the past week, leading to a lot of confusion. Here’s an explainer on the rules and conditions for different categories of travellers arriving in Bengaluru.

The process of travelling to Karnataka

a. Registration on Seva Sindhu
Regardless of whether you’re an inter-district, inter-state or international traveller, the process now begins by registration on the state Seva Sindhu website or by calling the helpline 080-22636800.
State government had earlier allowed for a one-time pass for people stranded within Karnataka to go back home in other districts of the state. Special intra-state buses had also been arranged, keeping in mind the plight of stranded migrant workers.

But for inter-district travel now, you need to register on Seva Sindhu portal so as to get an e-pass.

Inter-district travel is still mostly reserved for those needing a one-time pass (stranded workers, students, etc.) and is possible only through specific entry and exit points of districts.

Screening: Like in the case of inter-state travelers, inter-district travelers will be screened for symptoms upon arrival at the district border entry points.
