New Delhi, June 8 (MNN) A semblance of normal routine returned to national capital Delhi on Monday as more relaxations were kick-started as part of the gradual withdrawal of the lockdown, including resumption of Metro services with 50 per cent capacity.

On Saturday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced more relaxations in the lockdown imposed in Delhi amid the second wave of coronavirus pandemic.

From Monday, shops and malls would remain open from 10 am to 8 pm on an odd-even basis.

Standalone shops selling essential commodities will however open daily. The e-commerce services will operate as usual.

In government offices, while all officers need to be present on duty, the other staff would be 50 per cent of the normal strength.

The departments giving essential services to the public will function with 100 per cent officers and staff strength.

It would be the duty of the Head of the Department to decide if the services provided by their department was essential service or not. Private offices have been directed to work with 50 per cent staff.

“Efforts should be made for more and more staff to work from home,” the Chief Minister had said.

Kejriwal had said he hoped the corona situation in Delhi would improve further so that more relaxations in lockdown restrictions could be given.

He pointed out that the government had allowed factories and construction activities to resume earlier on.
