Chandigarh, September 2
The UT administration on Wednesday has decided to discontinue the odd-even closure of shops in congested markets from September 4.

This decision comes after a review meeting chaired by the UT administrator VP Singh Badnore, here. However, the onus of maintaining social distancing and ensuring mask-wearing will be on shop owners.

In view of the rise in COVID-19 cases, the Administration had ordered the closure of the shops on the basis of odd-even formula in 12 congested markets—including Patel Market in Sector 15, Shashtri Market in Sector 22, Sadar Bazaar and Palika Bazaar in Sector 19 etc, of the city.

During the course of the meeting, it was also decided that the Apni Mandis would not be operated, until further orders. However, Organic Markets could function with necessary precautions near Nagar Van.
