Many districts will get "considerable relaxations" beginning 4 May as the ongoing nationwide lockdown has resulted in "tremendous gains" in the COVID-19 fight, the government said on Wednesday after it paved the way for lakhs of migrant workers and students stranded at various places for over a month to return to their homes including by crossing state borders.

The Union Home Ministry added that new guidelines will come into effect from 4 May, giving "considerable relaxations to many districts".

Without divulging any details regarding the possible relaxations, the ministry said these new guidelines will be announced in the days to come.
