“With keeping eyes on the Covid situation, we have to look into economic activities also, as many poor families have already suffered a lot due to lockdown. Hence, from Monday, two activities will be open – construction and factories. We will take further decisions considering the Covid situation in Delhi,” Kejriwal said.
Beginning Monday, production units will be allowed to function in industrial areas within confines or manufacturing premises. In specified compounds, workers will also be allowed to carry out construction activities.
However, several activities still continue to be prohibited due to which Delhiites and people from adjoining areas would require an e-pass to travel in the capital city. People involved in the activities that are not listed in the Unlock 2021 guidelines need to have a valid e-pass. An e-pass is also mandatory for people crossing the border.
Thus, those travelling from Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad to Delhi must apply for an e-pass before getting into the city. Besides, bank and private sector employees, people working in IT and Internet services, broadcasting and cable services will have to produce e-pass before concerned authorities if they want to travel to the national capital.
