Difference between Section 144 and Curfew
Section 144 and curfew are not one thing. Curfew is imposed in very poor condition. In that case people are instructed to stay inside their homes for a particular time or period. Market, school, college are ordered to be closed. Only essential services are allowed to continue. Traffic is also completely banned during this period. On the other hand, 144 restricts certain movements and shut down particular services.
