The restrictions have been imposed as part of the state government's concerted efforts for screening and testing people for Covid-19 and to check the spread of other vector-borne diseases.

Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) Section 144, which bars assembly of more than four persons, is also in force in Gautam Buddh Nagar, whose urban areas fall in the red zone for Covid-19.

"On Sunday, 11 FIRs were registered and 22 people arrested for violating the curbs. A total of 4,240 vehicles were checked across 200 barrier points in the district and challans issued to 2,043 of them, while another 11 were impounded," the police said in a statement.

Altogether, 1,60,600 were collected in fines during the action, they said.

The Noida-Delhi border continues to remain sealed for movement except for essential services and people having passes issued by the district administration, according to officials.
