With the latest clarification from the police, travellers struggling to get to the airport or railway station because they had to cross the state border, can now easily show their confirmed train or flight tickets and cross the toll without any hassle.
The move, officials had said, was aimed at combating COVID-19 transmission as several of the coronavirus cases in Gautam Buddh Nagar could be traced to Delhi.
