Delhi Unlock 4: What is opening in national capital
However, the Delhi government is now willing to open metro services and has already sent a proposal to Centre regarding this. The government also wants to allow Yoga centres and gyms to run with strict guidelines but the final decision will be taken after getting the nod from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and the central government.
According to a senior official of the Delhi government, they have once again requested the central government to allow the DMRC to resume metro services even as they are assessing the coronavirus situation in the national capital. If the new cases of coronavirus continue to decrease in the coming days, it will be easier for the Kejriwal government to take a call on the reopening of all the closed services.
The official said that they are opening weekly markets on a trial basis for now but they will not be allowed to open on a regular basis for now. The permission to open weekly markets in pre-Covid ways will be taken by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority.
Services that are closed in Delhi that the government is planning to reopen from September 1 as part of Unlock 4 are:
- Metro Services
- Cinema hall
- The gym
- swimming pool
- Entertainment park
- Assembly hall and all such places
- All three interstate bus terminals
