Unlock-4.0 : No pass required to travel out of state


Recommended Posts

According to recent news articles, no state pass is required to travel from one state to another state. 
Rule was passed from the central government, it should be implemented by state.

I hope we will see unrestricted travel across the country very soon.
Seen few our members traveled recently without any pass. 

Updated implemented from September 1 :

According to news unlock 4.0 starts from September 1st.

No more state pass required to drive from one state to another state. 


The Ministry of Home Affairs on Saturday said that there shall be no restriction on inter-State and intra-State movement of persons and goods, and no separate permission/e-permit will be required for such movements during Unlock 4 (Tribune India)


Updates shared by the members who are travelled recently.


  • AP to TS : No pass required
  • TS to AP : No pass required
  • TS to KA : No pass required
  • KA to TS : No pass required




In a much-awaited development, the central government has lifted all restrictions on passenger and goods’ movement for both inter-state and intra-state travel. Reportedly, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla has written to all Union Territories and state and chief secretaries on the same. He has also communicated that any such imposition would henceforth be treated as violation of the guidelines issued by the MHA. Sorce : Times of India

I think Tamil Nadu is still an exception. Any idea if e-pass is required while travelling from Bangalore to Chennai?


You are right.



Chennai, Aug 25: The Ministry of Home Affairs directed all states to not block inter and intra state travel. While Karnataka has lifted all restrictions and done away with the e-pass system, Tamil Nadu appears to be reluctant to do so.

The government in TN is of the view that e-pass aides in contract tracing of COVID-19 positive cases. The government is in favour of continuing with the e-pass system.

However the government has Mae the e-pass system automatic as a result of which travel has been eased.

A final decision on the e-pass would be taken by Tamil Nadu on August 29, following a review meeting with the district collectors, a Times of India report said.

Many are reluctant to do away with the e-pass system and Chief Minister E Palaniswami is saiid that have expressed his displeasure with the Centre's new directive. He is of the view that all efforts taken to contain the pandemic would go waste if the pass system is abolished.


Looks like Tamilnadu is still following epass system.

I guess by end of this month, most of them will lift the pass system.

  • Gowtham changed the title to Unlock-4.0 : No pass required to travel out of state

Recent update from Hyderabad to Bangalore by Krishna Jain:


Finally made the long due drive from Bangalore to Hyderabad and back. What an amazing road.. full highway with no single road in between at all.
Started at 5 AM from Hennur, once you reach Hebbal, it is all highway (NH44) with excellent condition.
Made only 1 stop for tea break for 15 mins. Reached Hyderabad at 12:45 PM. Return next day started at 6:45 AM from Hyderabad and reached back home at 3:15 PM with a 30 minute break in between.
Saw the massive KIA motors plant in between and few beautiful temples on the way apart from the epic scenery.
There were no checkpoints and no pass requirements. Only while exiting Bangalore in the early morning at one point there was a check point where police asked where I was going and if there was anything in the boot.
No exertion, hassle-free drive all along. I am happy I decided to take this trip and avoid a flight. 🙂
Technical details:
Total trip ~1200 kms.
Total tolls cost ~1310 (more single trip cost incurred towards the end as I returned the next day)
Lesser traffic on the highway with no RTC/Volvo buses.
Pack your own food to have a zero contact trip.

Thanks a lot Mr. Jain for clearing the lump of a doubt about the inter state permits between Telangana, AP and Bangalore... During my recent travel to Vijayawada m, I was asked to produce the pass to enter AP even after the rule has been relaxed.. Thanks a lot for sharing a recent update on this track.

    • Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh
      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
