Travel passes issued by the Delhi Police will continue to be valid till May 3 following the extension of the lockdown, officials said today.
The move comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced today that the current lockdown will be extended till May 3, saying it is very necessary to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
In an internal communication to the force, Delhi Police Commissioner SN Shrivastava said, "The police passes were issued with validity upto April 14. Since the lockdown has been extended, passes will remain valid upto May 3 and no separate order reviewing the passes is being issued."
All guidelines, instructions and orders will continue to be valid till further orders, he stated.
