Uniyal, while announcing the new guidelines, stated that the government has extended the curfew, but with new relaxations; with the new relaxations, residents will also be allowed to travel to hill districts from plain districts, without having to produce a negative report of RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen.

He further added that the mandatory RT-PCR antigen or rapid test for moving from plain to hilly districts in the state has been done away with, and people will now be able to move freely in the state. He added that water parks and multiplexes in the state can now operate with 50 per cent occupancy, whereas shops would now be allowed to operate from 8 AM to 9 PM against the previous timing of 8 AM to 7 PM.

Uttarakhand high court slams state for not capping number of tourists

Rush of tourists on Mussoorie Mall Road (TOI Photo)


NAINITAL: Expressing concern over media reports of kanwarias trying to sneak into Haridwar and tourists turning up at the hill stations with fake Covid reports, the Uttarakhand high court on Wednesday asked the state government why no penal action was being taken under the disaster management Act against those flouting norms.
Despite the ban on Kanwar yatra this year, kanwarias have continued to illegally enter Uttarakhand, prompting the state to deploy gangajal tankers on its borders to allow devotees to collect holy water from Ganga. In just two days, the state has sent back nearly 650 kanwarias who managed to reach Haridwar.
At least 14 pilgrims have also been detained and quarantined at a local ashram. On Wednesday, the bench of chief justice RS Chauhan and justice Alok Kumar Verma asked senior government officials, including chief secretary S S Sandhu, why no penal action was being taken against them. The court also remarked that all Covid appropriate behaviours “go for a toss whenever there is an influx of a large number of tourists”.
The court asked the secretary (disaster management) why the district administrations had not set a cap on the number of tourists who would be allowed into Mussoorie and Nainital.
Thousands of tourists have been arriving at the two hill stations since lockdown restrictions were eased earlier this month. The bench remarked that maintaining social distance with such a high number of tourists is nearly impossible.
“If the tourists in Nainital are made to stand six feet apart from each other, the queue would extend to Kausani (Bageshwar district),” it said.

People travelling to Uttarakhand are no longer required to carry a negative report of the RT-PCR test done within 72 hours, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami announced on Friday, July 31. The announcement by the CM comes as COVID-19 situation has improved in the state with the active caseload dropping significantly.
On the other hand, the India Meteorological Department has been warning tourists to be safe and stay alert due to bad weather as several parts of the state are facing the wrath of heavy rain.
Earlier all those coming from outside to Uttarakhand including the tourists were required to show a negative RT-PCR test report not older than 72 hours of arrival at the airport and the entry points to the state.
CM Dhami, at a news channel’s programme, said, “The rate of infection has fallen significantly in the state. There are many districts from where not a single positive case of Covid-19 is being reported. According to Dhami, in these circumstances, the state government has made mandatory arrangements to relax the travel restrictions by ending the necessity to carry documentary evidence of vaccination and negative RT-PCR report while travelling to the state.”

Elaborating on the problems faced by the tourists heading to Uttarakhand, CM Dhami said that because of this type of checking system, hundreds of vehicles are getting stuck at entry points to the state causing traffic jams. The concerned top officers have been informed to abolish these rules and soon this new arrangement will be added in the new guidelines of COVID-19 protocol, he added.

This is correct. While CM announced "no RT-PCR" needed, there is no official notification of that. So either vaccination or negative report is needed.
The checks are not so stringent though. One may be able to slip though without being checked.

At the border we went through rapid antigen test and applied for epass after which we were allowed to proceed.

Doon Check Post - Rapid Antigen Test done at Dehradoon Border.
After Antigen Test they asked for ePass. Now they have shown Registration Number of ePass Application.
ePass Registration is not instant.
It is taking much time.
Why ?
