As per the order the shops of the Zone-1 (Central Part of the City) are exempted from the earlier order of opening on the basis of left-righ pattern.

All shop owners will have to ensure the enforcement of social distancing among customers, they must be put on face and sell goods only to customers wearing masks.
At the meeting of the Crisis Management Group, senior member and former Mayor Krishnamurary Moghe had suggested to the officials that as there has been no surge in positive case of Covid-19 in the last four days, even after freeing the shops of left-right system, the same exemptions should be continued even after Wednesday when the 4 days permissions comes to an end.
