The Delhi police in its advisory asked the commuters to avoid crossing the border from Kalindi Kundi barrage flyover and the DND without an e-pass. Uttar Pradesh is allowing passage of vehicles having valid passes issued by the Noida DM. 

In the 4th phase of nationwide lockdown due to Coronavirus, shops, markets and offices would be allowed to conduct businesses. Shopping malls, cinema theatres and bars would remain closed as of now. States could implement other restrictive steps if needed to curtail the movement of the citizens. 

Relaxations in lockdown guidelines would not be implemented in the containment areas in red or orange zones. Essential activities and services will only be allowed by the administration in the severely affected areas. With the easing of the relaxation, the government gave the states the power to colour-code the zones. The final decision to resume any activities in any area lies with the state government.
