MUMBAI: BMC commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal on Friday issued orders that excluding containment zones, liquor shops selling the same in sealed bottles will be permitted to operate by selling the same to customers by delivery of the same to their home address. The order will be operational from the midnight of May 22.
A containment zone is basically an area where a Covid-19 positive patient or his/her high risk contacts are living in.
However, under no circumstances would over-the-counter sales of liquor be permitted from such shops and instead e-commerce platforms may be utilised by the liquor shops to provide for home delivery.
All other measures for containment of Covid-19 in the city still remain in force namely all malls, markets, complexes and markets to remain closed in urban areas. However, shops selling essential goods in markets and complexes are permitted.
