How to register for movement pass for Loakdown Time in Bangladesh
Police have launched “movement pass” to people based on needs amid the “strict lockdown” which is going into effect from tomorrow.
People can obtain the pass through an app by visiting: movementpass.police.gov.bd.
Inspector General of Police Benazir Ahmed has inaugurated the app today noon, a day before the week-long strict lockdown.
About 1.25 lakh applications were received in the first hour of the app launch. Moreover, at least 15,000 applications are being submitted per minute, according to AIG Media and PR.
Last year during lockdown, police took this initiative but failed to launch it on time.
During lockdown, no one will be allowed to come out without a movement pass. However, journalists do not need any movement pass, IGP informed during the launching event.
Bangladesh is going to have a strict lockdown from Wednesday to tackle the worsening situation of coronavirus.
The government on Monday announced a set of restrictions to be imposed during the nationwide one-week strict lockdown from 14-21 April.
