"I would like to clarify that the purpose of restricting the movement of individuals, except for essential services, between 9 pm and 5 am (during lockdown 5.0) is primarily intended to prevent congregation of persons and to ensure social distancing.

"The restriction does not apply to instances of loading/unloading of goods (as part of supply chains and logistics); buses carrying persons and trucks and goods carriers plying on state and National Highways; or persons travelling to their destinations after disembarking from buses, trains, and flights," Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla wrote in his communique.

The relaxations in night curfew have been extended for a couple of hours more during the lockdown 5.0, which would continue till June 30.
