As Delhi eases more restrictions, the metro resumes operations with 50 percent seating capacity, markets and malls open on an odd-even basis from 10 am to 8 pm, and standalone shops to stay open on all days. Liquor shops can also open on an odd-even basis within the prescribed timings.
Schools, colleges and all other educational institutions will continue to remain closed.
The decision on which shops will open on a particular day will be made by the local market associations based on the serial number assigned to a particular shop. The movement of owners and workers of shops, malls, and market will be based on the production of valid ID or e-pass.
Shops selling essential items and pharmacies can remain open all days of the week. E-commerce will continue.
Group A government officials can work from the office on all days, but other categories can work at only 50 percent capacity. In the case of private offices, ‘work from home’ and staggered work hours have been advised.
