The government has ordered restriction of movement, except for emergencies and people providing essential services. These social distancing measures have been taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a respiratory disease that has been declared a global pandemic. To make sure the businesses providing essential services can move without issues or regular people can venture outside their homes to deal with emergencies, several states and union territories are offering e-passes that can be obtained online. E-pass for lockdown is also being referred to as movement pass or COVID-19 emergency pass, or online lockdown pass by some states.
