District Administration inspects vehicle movement at Bathubasti & Junglighat areas

Port Blair ,

     The South Andaman District Administration has taken various measures for bringing down the COVID-19 positive cases in the District. One such measure is imposition of lockdown restrictions to reduce the movement of people, so that the transmission of virus can be contained. To check the movement of people on road, under the instruction of Shri Suneel Anchipaka, Deputy Commissioner (SA), the SDM (SA), AC(S) and AC (UT) inspected vehicle movement at Bathubasti and Junglighat areas. The Revenue Officers too conducted such inspections at different locations. During the inspections by the District Administration officials, it was found that many vehicles are on the roads without e-pass and many were noticed misusing e-passes. The violators were challaned and were given stern warning for violating the lockdown restrictions. More than 100 challans were made within a span of one hour and this shows lack of seriousness on the part of public.
       The District Administration has imposed lockdown in South Andaman District for the health and safety of general public considering the surge in positive cases. The attempt was to reduce the unwanted movement of public, so as to bring down the positive cases in the District, so that COVID is eliminated from the District and normalcy is reinstated. But, to achieve the same, the public has to follow the restrictions, adopt COVID appropriate behaviour and cooperate with the Administration in its fight against this pandemic, without which, the efforts will not be fruitful.
     The DC (SA) reiterated that stringent actions will be taken against the violators and has once again requested the general public to follow the lockdown restrictions in letter and spirit and also avoid unwanted and unnecessary movement for the safety of their family and society as whole, which would definitely help the Administration in its fight against the pandemic. The special teams of Executive Magistrate and Sub-Inspectors have been deployed to monitor the vehicle movement and public have been  requested to behave responsibly and follow guidelines, a press release from Deputy Commissioner (SA) said.
