The Bihar government had on Sunday enforced a lockdown on all district headquarters, sub-divisional headquarters, block headquarters and urban local bodies of the state with immediate effect till March 31.

In a circular issued in this regard, it, however, clarified that all essential services -- groceries, medicines, dairy shops, petrol pump, CNG stations, banking, ATM, post office and print and electronic media, have been kept out of the purview of the lockdown.
