How will the next phase of lockdown in Delhi be? A hint was dropped by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday, May 14, 2020. The Central Government has suggested the capital city to open its markets, shopping complexes, malls, etc. under the odd-even system after May 17, 2020. According to sources, the Delhi government has sent the notice to the capital, which also says that in continuation to following social distancing, buses, metro trains and taxis can start functioning. Proposing resuming of construction, the workers and labourers can be allowed to travel in and out of the city.

Having said all of this, Kejriwal stresses that any kind of activity should not be carried out in the containment zones. He is quoted, “Majority of the market associations have urged that the market and complexes should be opened. They have asked to use the odd-even policy that has worked earlier. Half of the shops on one day and the other half on another.”
