All shops can now open in Mohali district daily as the district administration has removed the odd-even restriction imposed in view of Covid for shopkeepers.
Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan said the decision had been taken after a delegation of shopkeepers met him on Tuesday. He said as the Covid situation had improved in the district with minimum cases surfacing, all shops would remain open from 9 am to 5 pm. He said the directions had been given to the shopkeepers to observe Covid guidelines.
Dayalan said private offices, which were functioning with 33 per cent staff, had now been allowed to increase their staff strength to 50 per cent.
He said if the situation improved further, the restrictions would be eased to give relief to the people.
