Updated: Aug 21, 2021

Convener of Sarkar Jagao Vanijya Bachao Sangharsh Samiti and President of Chamber of Associations of Maharashtra Industry and Trade (CAMIT) Dipen Agrawal while reacting to relaxations announced late night yesterday, said that these relaxations, though delayed, is welcomed by Sangharsh Samiti. We have been impressing up on administration at all levels to abide by its own scientific order and permit economic activities as per levels prescribed under 4th June 2021 order.

All shops including those in malls are now allowed operate till 8.00 pm on all days. Hotel, restaurants, bars, food joints are permitted to operate on all days at 50% capacity till 10.00 pm and takeaways till 11.00 pm. Coaching institutes are allowed to operate till 8.00 pm at 50% capacity on all days. The order is silent on relaxation to tourism, entertainment and sectors connected with hospitality.

Agrawal said that shop/mall operators will leave no stone turned to get their staff vaccinated and impress upon customers to get vaccinated. Considering ongoing pace of vaccination, he appealed administration to ensure uninterrupted supply of vaccine at government centres.

Dipen Agrawal on behalf of most affected sectors thanked Dr. Nitin Raut, Guardian Minister Nagpur district for his efforts to bring the much-needed respite, though the relaxation now granted are still short of Level-1 relaxation. Agrawal requested Dr. Raut to tighten his belt to bring relief to entertainment industry like backstage artist, theatres, single-screen & multi-screen cinema halls, etc. and left-out segments connected to hospitality sector like Mangal Karyalay, Decorators, Caterers, Florists, Band troupe, etc. else they may perish.
