Maha Govt. lockdown guidelines

The Maharashtra Government lockdown guidelines is out for the state of Maharashtra effective from 1st June to 30th June, 2020. I am sure you can view the detailed guidelines on the internet.

What has been allowed is outdoor physical activities like walking, running, cycling etc. with proper social distancing norms, masks etc. Solo running is allowed but not group activities

Activities related to self-employed people like plumbers, electricians, pest-control and technicians with social distancing norms and usage of masks and sanitization. (This should have been allowed long back considering the most essential nature of their service, anyways better late than never).

Garages to mend vehicles and workshops with prior appointments. – allowed (prior appointment is always taken when you take your car to the maruti service station for maintenance/ repair – this has always been the practice)

All the above are allowed from 3rd June, 2020

All markets, market areas & shops, except malls and market complexes, are allowed to function on PI-P2 basis (shops on one side of the road/lane/passage to be opened on odd dates while shops on the other side on even dates) from 9 am to 5 pm with following conditions. (not clear whether it includes hawkers as well but my gut feeling is that roadside hawkers will take a long time to come back to business – years even)

This is allowed from 5th June, 2020

All private offices can operate with up to 10% strength as per requirement, with remaining persons working from home. However all the employers will take sensitisation programs to educate the employees to take adequate precautions on returning home so that vulnerable group especially the elderly is not infected. (this is allowed from 8th June, 2020)

Intra district is allowed with 50% capacity which means BEST buses can take on general public to the extent of 50%

This is what has been changed from the last lockdown on 17th May 2020.

What is not allowed from the MHA order is malls, hotels, restaurants, places of worship, barbers, hair saloons, beauty parlours. Maha Govt is more conservative in that regard. But the government has said that they will take a call on these items and will issue guidelines separately. So we might see some relaxations even before 30th June, 2020 in these items.

Still the no. of active cases in Mumbai are exceeding 1400 per day, so the Govt. needs to be careful in that regard.
