The exemption of opening shops and other institutions by the Central Government will not be applicable in Jalandhar; Because Jalandhar is currently in the red zone for 63 Corona patients. Therefore, the administration has not taken any decision about any kind of relief here.
Confirming this, District Magistrate Varinder Sharma said that it was not a relief to open any kind of shops in the district. If any instruction comes from the state government in this regard, then related orders will be issued.
Not any instructions from Punjab government
The central government issued orders on Saturday morning that small shops can be opened, except shopping malls and other large institutions.
But the Punjab government has not given any instructions in this regard yet. Curfew is in force in Punjab till 3 May. The district administration has also appealed to the people not to get into any rumor, whenever a decision is taken, an order will be issued on behalf of the district magistrate
