No Complete Lockdown In Maharashtra, Only Curbs; New ‘Stricter’ SOPs Likely By Tomorrow

Mumbai: Maharashtra will not witness a complete lockdown, but district-wise stringent restrictions and containment zones, sources in the Maharashtra government said.

According to reports, a fresh set of Standard of Proceedures (SOPs) on the curbs was likely to be made public by April 1 or 2.

Relief and Rehabilitation Secretary Aseemkumar Gupta said consultations on the matter were ongoing. “We are in the middle of hectic discussions. We will let all know as soon as a decision is made,” he said.

State Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has asked him to prepare fresh SOPs on further restrictions to be implemented amid a rise in COVID-19 cases, and deaths.

While Thackeray had directed the administrative machinery to prepare for a complete lockdown, there has been a severe pushback from both the MVA allies – NCP and Congress. According to them, a complete lockdown would result in economic harm.

“We are looking at more district-wise containment zones and local level restrictions. The idea is to curb clusters. We don’t want to stop those going out for work, or attending to essential services,” said Vinita Ved Singhal, Principal Secretary in the Labour Department.

She added that the government was, however, looking to “bring restrictions on pleasure activities that lead to public gatherings.”

Thereby, malls, shopping complexes, theatres may not shut down completely but likely face further restrictions. Such curbs may also be imposed on unnecessary movement of people.

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better? asmr 0mniartist

  4. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
