'Movement Pass' mandatory during lockdown

People needing to go out to provide essential service during the one-week COVID-19 restrictions from April 14 would require a “Movement pass,” police said on Monday.

The pass holder will be able to move on the road without any interruption. Police launched a special app to implement the matter.

The Inspector General of police, Benzir Ahmed, is expected to inaugurate the app on Tuesday.

Movement Pass will be given to service providers of different categories including medicine, medical, transportation of agricultural products through link, said officials.

Conditional permission will be granted for a specified period of time after providing the required service.

People have to take a pass for every journey.

To apply for Movement Pass, everyone needs to fill in the information like name, mobile number, place of departure, destination, ID card or driving license, the reason for the journey etc. Police will later issue a pass online.

The pass issued online will contain all the travel information. At the same time, there will be a QR code scanner, which can be scanned by the police personnel on duty at various check-posts to easily ensure the movement of the authorised person.
