Coronavirus Pune: Railway passengers flouting norms, not carrying RTPCR report

Pune: Passengers travelling by train to Pune have been flouting norms and have not been carrying RT PCR reports which have been made mandatory.

None of the passengers who have reached the city railway during the past three days from Delhi, Goa, Rajasthan and Gujarat carried RT-PCR negative reports with them.
This has made the situation difficult for the officials posted at the railway station. Two Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) staffers have now been stationed near the stairs of the new foot overbridge used by the passengers to leave the station.
Although the Maharashtra Government is yet to take a decision on the Centre’s request to defer till December 1 implementation of its new rules making a negative RT-PCR report mandatory for air, road and rail passengers from Rajasthan, Goa, Gujarat and Delhi, it has decided to grant exemption to the transit flyers.

People travelling to Maharashtra from the four states are supposed to either carry the RT-PCR negative reports or undergo the rapid antigen test in case they have any flu-like symptoms.
