Those who are coming from or going to the airport, railway stations, and bus terminals will be allowed to move over the weekend on showing valid travel tickets.
Also, those appearing for academic or recruitment exams will be allowed to move during the curfew on producing the ID and admit card, the report said.
What’s not allowed
The weekend curfew will not allow the movement of non-essential items. State government and municipal officials not involved in essential services will have to work from home, the order said.
During the weekend, private offices will have to operate with 50 percent capacity, said the DDMA statement.
The DDMA has allowed public transport buses and metros to run at full seating capacity. Earlier, buses and metros in Delhi were running with 50 percent seating capacity and no standing passengers. The decision to operate in full capacity was taken to avoid crowding outside metro stations and bus stops, Sisodia said, adding that the government feared these areas would become superspreaders.
