New cases of corona in Maharashtra are breaking new records every day despite curfew imposed with strict restrictions. In view of the situation, strict restrictions like lockdown have been imposed in the state on 22 April. These restrictions will remain in force in the state from 8 pm tonight till 7am of May 1. However, the Maharashtra government has not named it a complete lockdown but its rules are as strict as the lockdown imposed last year. The state government has also released new guidelines for the ‘Break the chain’ campaign.
All government offices (state, central or local authority) may have a presence of only 15 per cent of employees. This rule will only exempt offices that are connected with essential services. Under the “Break the Chain” campaign on April 13, the offices housed in section 5 can hold 15 per cent or a maximum of 5 employees.
Wedding ceremonies may not last more than 2 hours and will not include more than 25 people. If a violation of these rules is found in a wedding ceremony, then a fine of 50 thousand rupees can be imposed.
