Janpath market, the most common shopping destination in Delhi Central, was stopped until further orders were issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority to flout COVID-19 protocoles on Monday (DDMA).
“DDMA infringements not following the appropriate Covid-style behavioural norms” was added to the list of closures in the lively market close to Connaught Place.
“In the following directions, the Director (Enforcement), NDMC and SHO Connaught Place shall enforce the order immediately and submit the conformity report,” said the DDMA.
In recent days, several economies have also been closed down for overcrowding and flooding of covid norms, including Karol Bagh and Lajpat Nagar.
A big crowd also saw Covid alarms during the weekend in the popular Sarojini Nagar market.
Sadar Basar was partially closed down for three days before Sunday because of overcrowding and violation of the standards of physical distance.
Previously the Delhi government ordered Lajpat Nagar Market and Rui Mandi to be shut down in Sadar Bazar on the grounds that COVID-19 was violated.
