A day after the Union Home Ministry released guidelines for easing restrictions in non-containment zones as a part of Unlock 3.0, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal released rules for the national capital.
According to the order, the Delhi government has ended night curfew (10 pm to 5 am) and also allowed reopening of hotels and hospitality services.
The government said it will allow weekly bazaars on a trial basis for a week while ensuring social distancing norms.
Last week, the government had allowed street hawkers to operate from 10 am to 8 pm on a trial basis for a week. They will now be permitted to function in future without any limitations on operating hours.
"These decisions are in continuation of several important decisions taken by CM Arvind Kejriwal in the past few days to ensure Delhi's economy, which was impacted severely by the lockdown, gets back on track," the statement from the chief minister's office read.
Earlier in the week, Kejriwal had launched 'Rozgar Bazaar' jobs portal to ensure synchronisation between businesses looking to hire and job-seekers.
Besides, the Kejriwal-led AAP government had also de-linked hotels from COVID-19 hospitals after the chief minister said beds in such facilities have been lying vacant for the last many days.
"Since hotels of Delhi are no longer linked to hospitals, the Delhi government has decided to allow normal functioning of hotels and hospitality services as permitted under Centre's unlock guidelines," the order read.
