Dispensing with the e-pass system will eventually be good for the people who have resumed normal life despite the coronavirus threat.
"The Tamil Nadu government is apparently hesitating to do away with the e-pass as the state is reporting about 6,000 (average) new COVID-19 cases daily. But it will be in the interest of the people, if the e- pass system is scrapped," Radhakrishnan, a former union minister told reporters here after attending a meeting of the BJP workers.
As per the Unlock 3 guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, no separate travel e-pass or permission is required for movement of persons and goods across states. 
After the Centre issued a circular to Chief Secretaries of all states, informing them that there shall be no restrictions on inter-state and intra-state travel of people and goods, fisheries minister D Jayakumar had said the state government will take a decision after discussions with officials and a medical expert team in the coming days.
