Time to reopen city, have to live with corona: Kejriwal

No public transport, but you can take out your car

Delhi government has allowed movement of people for all non-essential works between 7am and 7pm, besides opening of all private offices with 33% staff and let self-employed people such as domestic helps, sanitation workers, technicians, mechanics, plumbers and electricians to operate.

Though the guidelines issued by the Centre says the RWAs will decide if the maids are allowed in a residential colony, there was no such restriction imposed by Delhi government, an official said. “If there are instances that the RWAs are not allowing despite residents wanting the maids to work, the government may intervene,” another government official said.

While public transport, including Metro and buses, taxis, auto-rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws won’t ply, people can move around alone on twowheelers and with two passengers in a car. All standalone shops and those located in the neighbourhood and residential complexes dealing in essential or non-essential commodities, including liquor, pan, gutkha and cigarettes, would also be allowed to function, the CM said. About 150 government-run liquor shops can remain open between 9am and 6.30pm.
