Lockdown to ease from April 20, two-wheelers allowed on roads



 inter-district travel will not be allowed, though Bengaluru and Ramanagara district could be, for this purpose, considered as one district as there is more movement of construction materials and workers to the city.

Section 144 will remain in place until May 3, the CM said.

The lockdown easing measures (after April 20) that were announced include:
