The Indian government has extended the nationwide lockdown by two more weeks from May 4, 2020. However, unlike previous times, this time around there are a few relaxations for the people as well as the industries. Being called the Lockdown 3.0, it allows four-wheelers and two-wheelers to ply on roads in orange and green zone districts.

First things first, the MHA has categorized all the districts in three major categories: Green, Orange & Red. Red Zones, also known as Hotspot districts, have been identified on the basis of total number of active cases, doubling rate of confirmed cases, extent of testing and surveillance. In such districts, four-wheelers with two passengers in maximum besides the driver are allowed to ply on the roads. In the case of two-wheelers, no pillion is allowed. Though, both the aforementioned vehicle movements are not allowed in areas that have been labelled as containment zones.
