After the Coronavirus outbreak became severe in the country, earlier this week PM Modi announced a nationwide lockdown for 21 days. Amid this lockdown, people are facing issues to get their daily needs services. In such a scenario, the Delhi government has launched a website to provide essentials to the needy during the lockdown.
This website will help those who are unable to get food and other services because of the lockdown in the national capital and other parts of the country as well. This website not only provides them with food, ration, compensation for daily wage workers and pension amount but also lets them apply for an e-Pass in case they need to travel.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can apply for these services.
Go to the official website by the Delhi government-
First, choose the language- English or Hindi.
Choose the option – What do you need help with?
1. Food Require (भोजन की आवश्यकता)
2. Ration require (राशन चाहिए)
3. Rs. 5,000 compensation for a construction worker (कंस्ट्रक्शन वर्कर को 5000 रुपये मुआवजा)
4. Pension Amount (पेंशन राशि)
5. e-Pass for travel during curfew (कर्फ्यू के दौरान यात्रा के लिए ई-पास)
Click on any of these options and a slider will open
Enter your Name, Contact Number and Address. Then click on the submit button.
If you choose e-Pass for travel during the lockdown-
Enter your Name, Contact Number and Address, as well as your type of service, time, date, and ID proof. Then submit.
Note: As per the website, the e-Pass is being issued for those who do not have a Government ID and are offering essential services such as manufacturing, transport, storage, and groceries. The website says that the form is launched only for such people and ‘others kindly DO NOT submit this form’ to obtain e-pass.
