A decision was made to allow the operation of all types of shops from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm by mandatorily wearing masks, using sanitizer and maintaining social distance.
CDO Joshi shared the vehicular operation would be permitted under the odd and even number system and the restriction enforcement would also be monitored.
“We have slightly relaxed the restriction to ease life. But it does not mean not to adopt health safety measures. I urge one and all for strictly embracing health safety precautions though the restriction enforcement is relaxed”, he added.
