Curfew lifted in  Chandigarh; lockdown continues with some relaxations 

Though Chandigarh still figures in 130 red zone districts but movement will be allowed from 7 am to 7 pm. The internal stand-alone shops will be open from 10 am to 6 pm on odd-even system. Shops selling essentials like groceries, vegetables, medicines will be open on all days.

Liquor vends in sector markets will be open. Distribution of fruits and vegetables by government buses will continue.

Earlier vehicles were not allowed but now people will be able to use their vehicles. In another major decision, the containment zone in the city will be restricted to the pockets identified and notified by the UT from where cases have been reported.

It has been decided to declare Kachi Colony in Dhanas, part of Bapu Dham Colony, part of Sector 30-B, part of Shastri Nagar in Mani Majra, part of Sector 38 and part of Sector 52 as containment zones from May 4.

The UT will conduct an intensive screening and testing of all cases within the containment pockets.

All Sampark centres will be open from May 11 and all government offices and private offices will be functional as per the norms fixed by MHA. 

People can now visit hospitals and clinics during the permissible time.

Lockdown restrictions which will prevail in the city will be that people have to wear mask while moving out and observe social distancing. 

Restaurant/eating joints, Apni mandis, big shopping malls and complexes such as the Sector 17 market, shops on roads separating sectors and delivery of cooked food by online agencies will be closed. 
Chandigarh being capital of Punjab and Haryana would honour the movement passes from both the states.
