    COVID19 test must for city traders, employees, delivery persons: DC Kamrup Metro

    The metro district administration rejected Kamrup Chamber of Commerce's request to allow the opening of shops and godowns of both sides of the street

    Guwahati: With the Unlock 1.0 starting from Monday in Guwahati, the Kamrup (metro) district administration has decided that shops on the right hand side of any street will remain open on Monday while ships on the other side will open on Tuesday.

    On Saturday, state government allowed opening of all shops on one side of the road on alternative days between Monday to Friday 7 AM to 5 PM. Saturday and Sunday will be total lockdown.

    Biswajit Pegu, Deputy Commissioner Kamrup (metro) in an order said, “For this, Paltan Bazar will be the nodal point from where right and left sides will be finalised. For example, shops on the right hand side of the road from Paltan Bazar towards Khanapara on Monday. Similarly, from Jalukbari to Noonmati ,  shops on right hand side on Monday.”

    The order added that shops on the right hand side of the road from Jalukabari to VIP Road, Azara can open on Monday.  “Six Mile to Narengi — Right hand side on Monday; Six Mile to Panjabari — Right hand side on Monday,” it cited.  

    The district administration has fixed that the system will be reversed on the next week.

    “In the next week, the reverse system of opening will be done i.e, on Monday, left side and on Tuesday, right side and so on, the shops and business establishments will be opened,” the order said.

    In remaining areas of small lanes and bye lanes the local trade body will finalise the right or left side.

    Pegu has also asked all traders to get themselves tested along with their employees, delivery persons etc for COVID 19.

    It was strictly clarified that failure to comply with the orders will invite necessary actions including summary cancellation of licences.

    The metro district administration has also rejected a request by Mahavir Jain, President, Kamrup Chamber of Commerce, who sought permission to open shops and godowns of both sides of the street as many traders are having a shop on one side and godown on the opposite side of the street.

    The Unlock 1.0 will be in effect for two weeks.
