The state government has given the power to allow inter-state or inter-district travel.

However, special care is being taken for Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority and Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), because they have the highest numbers of Coronavirus COVID19 patients.
