    COVID-19: Hailakandi Admin Launches Home Delivery Of Groceries To Maintain Social Distancing

    Markets and grocery shops remained open for a stipulated time to enable people to buy groceries and other essential items

    With a view to minimising contacts in the wake of coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and subsequent lockdown, the Hailakandi district administration has launched ‘Sahayata’ for doorstep delivery of groceries with minimal delivery charges. 

    The door step delivery of groceries at home during the lockdown period is a joint initiative of the district and Hailakandi Municipal Board. The service will be available in all the 16 wards of the town. 

    Deputy Commissioner, Keerthi Jalli, said, “The doorstep delivery of groceries during the lockdown period is yet another initiative to bring the administration closer to the people.”

    “To keep the gatherings minimal, and to promote healthy alternatives, we are launching ‘Sahayata’ for doorstep delivery of groceries with minimal delivery charges. I request the denizens of the town to make use of this facility and stay indoors and be safe,” added Jalli. 

    The first customer to receive home delivery of groceries was Chairperson of Hailakandi Municipal Board, Shamoli Roy.

    Receiving the groceries at her residence, Roy said, “People of the town must avail the home delivery service at a nominal charge during the lock down. They must avoid stepping out of homes and maintain social distancing.”

    Members of Ekta, an NGO, engaged by the administration delivered the groceries at her home. Circle Officer cum Executive Officer, Hailakandi Municipal Board, Tridib Roy was present on the occasion. 

    Markets and grocery shops remained open for a stipulated time to enable people to buy groceries and other essential items. 

    The administration has urged the people not to go in for panic buying as there is enough foodstuff to last for two months. It has warned of stringent action against the unscrupulous traders creating artificial scarcity and hiking the prices. 

    Police have had to resort to batons against the violators in Hailakandi town and elsewhere. “Stringent action will be taken if anyone flouts the standing government as well as administration orders during the lock down period,” said Superintendent of Police, Pabindra Kumar Nath. 

    Door-to-door collection of garbage in residential areas and also in commercial places are being carried out by the Hailakandi Municipal Board, Jalli informed. “Sanitisation of vulnerable areas and market places are being done by the municipal board,” the Deouty Commissioner said.

    1,290 persons have been home quarantined, including 188 on March 25th, 2020. 118 surveillance teams are in the field.
