Delhi Unlock Guidelines: Government has permitted various activities to resume in the city during the last two weeks, including workplaces, the Delhi Metro, and marketplaces and malls.
Many businesses, however, have remained closed in accordance with the guidelines of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority.
With the positive rate holding below 0.5% for the previous three days, more areas, including as parks, are expected to reopen this week.
What is Open?
Construction activities and factories
Construction, along with manufacturing, was the first industry to reopen in Delhi. However, with the lockdown, which was first scheduled for a week on April 19, extending for a month and a half, many workers had returned home, fearing a recurrence of last year’s situation in which they were stranded in the city without job, food, or public transportation. They have now begun to return in small numbers, as contractors and factory owners have made phone calls in the expectation that the staff will return soon.
All markets have been reopened on an odd-even basis. According to this standard, half of the stores will open on one day and the other half on the next, between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The market association might divide the market by designating the stores or by plot number.
However, some establishments, such as bookstores that sell instructional books, stationery, and fans, are authorised to be open on all days. All colonies and stand-alone shops that are not part of a designated market are also permitted to operate between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on all days.

The same rules that apply to markets will apply to malls, with only half of the stores being allowed to reopen.
Private enterprises have been given permission to reopen with a 50% cap, and authorisation letters and identity cards must be shown in order to go to and from the workplace. If at all feasible, offices have been advised to stagger their opening and closing times.
The government’s offices will be staffed entirely by Grade-I officials. A total of 50% of the remaining employees will be called in. Health and Family Welfare and all connected medical facilities, police, jails, home guards, civil defence, fire and emergency services, power, water and sanitation, and public transportation (air/railways/Delhi Metro / buses) have all been given permission to call the whole personnel.
Restaurants are still not permitted to Dine-In, although they are permitted to open every day for services such as delivery and takeout.
The Delhi Metro, which had been closed since May 10, has been reopened with a 50 percent passenger capacity. On the second day of the reopening (Tuesday), around 5.33 lakh Metro travels were performed till 8 p.m., and 136 passengers were penalised for not wearing masks during random checks inside trains by flying squads. 70 people were requested to disembark from the carriage while standing, which was not permitted.
Buses, on the other hand, will continue to run at 50% capacity.
People can also travel in their own cars, and though the DDMA directive does not specifically say which markets, offices, and other businesses are open, there is no practical method to prevent this.
According to the odd-even principle, liquor stores in markets and malls have been allowed to reopen. Stand-alone businesses that aren’t part of a recognised market can stay open all week.
