Travel restrictions in West Bengal; partial lockdown

During the final days of December 2021, there were whispered discussions about a possible lockdown in Kolkata starting on the first Monday of the new year, and it has come to pass in part because of this. To combat the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the state, the West Bengal government has implemented lockdown measures.

Travelers in West Bengal should exercise caution when venturing out and visiting bars and restaurants, as these establishments will only be able to accommodate half of their normal capacity. The same can be said for shopping centres. Every night, all of these establishments will be required to close their doors by 10 p.m.

From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., all public movement, gatherings, and vehicles are prohibited, which is one of the most important aspects of the partial lockdown. According to the most recent rules, only emergency services and essential services will be allowed to function.
