New Delhi. With the final phase of the lockdown approaching, but with no signs of any softening in the Corona transition, the government is busy brainstorming how to come out of it. According to the proposed mega plan at present, it is proposed to divide all the states into four categories and accordingly, it is being thought to remove the lockdown and start the service in different states or districts.
No exemption from lockdown where there are more cases
These will not be exempt from lockdown in areas with more active corona. But in states where no case of corona has been reported in the last seven days, there can be relief. In case of new cases, fresh restrictions may also be imposed. It is to be noted that on March 24, the three-week applicable lockdown period across the country ends on April 14.
Lockdown won’t end simultaneously
It is certain that the lockdown will not end simultaneously. The Prime Minister gave the same indication in a discussion with the ministers on Monday after a discussion with the Chief Ministers a few days ago. According to the sources, according to the draft of the exit plan which is prepared, the category of states will be decided on the basis of the number of people with corona. What is the number of patients per 10 lakh population there. One basis of the standard will also be whether a corona case has been reported in the last seven days. Standards will be changed for larger states and smaller states with more districts.
Four categories determined on the basis of norms
Based on these standards, the states will be placed in four categories. The current states with more than 50 cases of Corona have been placed in the fourth category, ie Gambhir. Here the lockdown will remain in force and all the activities will be restricted except the essential goods. More than two Corona cases per 10 lakh population or more than 40 percent of the districts affected by Corona will also be placed in this category. At the same time, more than 20 cases, 30 percent of the districts affected and one to two corona patients per 10 lakh population have been placed in the third category. Here, the lockdown will continue like the fourth category, but in addition to necessary activities, some other exemptions can also be given.
These states will be included in the first-second category
According to the Mega Plan, those states in which more than one district will be affected by Corona will be placed in the second category, but such districts will be less than 30 percent of the total districts. With this, there will be less than 20 corona patients present and their number will be less than one per 10 lakh population. The first category will be those districts in which not more than one district will be affected and the number of patients will be less than five. It will also be seen in this category that no new patient of a single corona has appeared in the last seven days.
Restrictions on rail, bus and air services will continue in these states
According to the Mega Plan, rail, bus and air services in the third category states may be relaxed with restrictions. But this exemption will be limited only within the state and restrictions on movement of people from other states will continue. Here also, districts with corona cases will be isolated from other districts and no one will be allowed to go there. Domestic aircraft and railway services may be permitted here with certain conditions. But all economic activities, educational and other services, except essential services, will remain suspended.
Permission can be given to start economic and educational activities here
At the same time, with the permission of the administration in the first category states, economic, educational and other activities will be allowed to start. Transport services by rail, air and waterways will be restored here, but it will not be allowed in the corona-affected district or states with category three and four. People can board and disembark here in the train, but no one will be allowed to climb or land in the Corona-affected state or district. While there will be no restriction on any kind of activity in the first category area.
