Bengaluru, June 6 (IANS) People arriving in Karnataka must register themselves on the Seva Sindhu portal and this requirement should be announced in the originating railway station, said a top official on Saturday.
"It is compulsory for all passengers travelling to Karnataka to register on the Seva Sindhu portal. Otherwise they will not be allowed for home quarantine," said Chief Secretary T.M. Vijay Bhaskar.
He requested the Railway Board Chairman Vinod Kumar Yadav to give instructions to origin railway stations to make this announcement to all the travellers taking a train to the southern state.
Bhaskar asked Yadav to make the people aware of this requirement right at the time of booking the tickets.
"Thousands of passengers are coming to Karnataka from New Delhi, Bihar, Maharashtra and other states by trains everyday. But most of the passengers do not register under the Seva Sindhu portal," he said.
Bhaskar said that many passengers may also not know the requirement as well.
"If passengers are not registered under Seva Sindhu, the state government will not be able to track them. Therefore, it is necessary to create awareness among passengers regarding registration under Seva Sindhu poral," he added.
