As the number of cases of Covid-19 rises in Maharashtra, new guidelines for shops and businesses have been issued. To learn more, go here.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has imposed stringent restrictions in the state for the next 15 days. Non-essential goods are prohibited, and only essential products are permitted to sever the chain of Covid infections.

“The battle has started again,” said Chief Minister Thackeray, speaking to the state about the massive increase in Covid-19 incidents.

If shopkeepers and those in vital facilities do not meet Covid laws, like vaccination, they will be fined.

The curbs will remain in effect until May 1st.

The following rules apply to shops that provide vital services:

A. Essential services shops must function while ensuring Covid Appropriate Behavior (CAB) by shop owners, employees, and customers on the premises.

B. It is mandatory for all shop owners and employees to get vaccinated as soon as possible, in accordance with GOI guidelines. All businesses should take precautions such as interacting with customers through clear glass or other material shields, accepting electronic payments, and so on.

C. Any important shop owner, employee, or customer found in violation of the above criteria will be fined Rs. 500/-, with the shop being fined Rs. 1000/- if the shop is found serving a customer who is in violation of Covid Appropriate Behavior. In the event of repeated defaults, a shop can be forced to close before the end of the Covid 19 disaster warning period.

D. Staff movement to perform important shop duties shall be considered a legitimate excuse for the purposes of 1 (b).

E. For the groceries, vegetable shops, fruit vendors, dairies, bakeries, confectioneries, and all other types of food shops listed in 2(3) above, local authorities should research the locations where these are densely located or where people may congregate in large numbers and plan out their staggering operations in terms of locations and, if necessary, operating times. In the case of non-permanent systems, open public spaces may also be defined for changing operations. Local governments are required to take the necessary steps to ensure that these critical operations do not become a hub for the spread of COVID 19. Local governments can also declare certain places closed for these operations if they find it appropriate.

F. All shop owners who are currently closed are advised to get all employees vaccinated in accordance with GOI guidelines, as well as equip themselves with measures such as customer contact via transparent glass or other material shields, electronic payment, and so on so that the government can expedite the reopening of the shop without fear of COVID 19 transmission.
