Earlier this week, the Maharashtra government launched an online system that will allow citizens who have completed 14 days following their second dose of COVID-19 to travel in suburban trains within Mumbai starting August 15.

According to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) release, a system to issue e-Passes conveniently to citizens has been developed.

E-pass Announcement for Mumbai Locals Passengers

According to the state government, those who for all intents and purposes have been fully vaccinated will for all intents and purposes be able to board suburban trains, considered to particularly be a lifeline to Mumbai, as of August 15, in a pretty major relaxation of Coronavirus control, or so they mostly thought.

In an effort to grant local train passes to fully inoculated individuals, the civic body launched an offline process on Wednesday to verify vaccination certificates for COVID-19.


Across 53 suburbs under the BMC’s jurisdiction, 358 help desks have been set up to issue offline passes.

In a BMC release, it was announced that the Maharashtra government’s Relief and Rehabilitation Department has already created a web link to provide electronic passes to employees and citizens working in essential services.

The same web link will be used to issue e-passes to Mumbai suburban railway travelers who have completed 14 days after receiving the second dose of vaccine and are fully vaccinated.

Citizens will receive monthly journey passes from the Railways after showing the e-pass at the ticket counter at suburban stations.

BMC clarified that commuters who obtain universal travel e-pass will not be required to undergo offline verification at railway stations.


During the process of online verification, no human interaction is required, the statement said.

In the release, it said citizens who were not given e-passes within 14 days of getting their second dose of vaccine will receive them after two weeks have passed since the second dose.

The civic body states that citizens must enter their vaccination number in order to get the universal travel e-pass.

Immediately following that, an SMS will literally be really received on the phone with an OTP (One-Time Password), or so they thought. The release states that details like beneficiary name, mobile number, reference number, among others, will mostly appear automatically when this OTP essentially is entered, demonstrating that immediately following that, an SMS will be literally received on the phone with an OTP (One-Time Password) in a kind of major way.


CM’s Action

The state government developed to enable citizens to get travel passes.

Once they have clicked Generate Pass, they need to proceed. According to the release sights, the application shows insights about the applicant’s 1st and 2nd doses of COVID-19.

In addition, the applicant must upload a photo of himself or herself with the ‘Self Image’ option.

A message will appear telling an applicant that an SMS link will be sent to him or her after completing this process. In order to access the link and download the e-pass, the applicant receives an SMS, reports the release.


The Maharashtra government has decided to open malls, restaurants, bars, hotels, gymnasiums, salons, beauty salons, and all shops until 10 p.m. due to a declining number of cases of COVID-19 in the state.


After accepting the recommendations of the Maharashtra COVID-19 task force, the Maharashtra government took this important decision in a meeting led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Despite the 50 percent condition remaining in the revised rules, delivery of parcels within 24 hours is allowed in restaurants where dine-in is permitted.
