The Maharashtra government along with the Railways is introducing a Universal Travel Pass with a QR code to travel in Mumbai local trains as people are travelling using fake ID cards, despite the pandemic restrictions.

In view of the information about the new version Delta Plus from the state, the state government has brought back some restrictions in the state. After the second wave of the pandemic, Mumbai's local services were never fully opened to the public. Only essential and emergency workers with valid ID proof can now travel by Mumbai locals.

In the first week of June, the Maharashtra government announced a five-tier unlock plan which has now been reduced to three, but nothing was announced about Mumbai local services.

Meaning of Universal Travel Pass

Apart from local trains, this pass will be valid for Mumbai Metro and Monorail. While the purpose of the pass is to eliminate people travelling using fake cards, the pass will also carry the degree based on which the person will be allowed to travel.
