Kejriwal relaxation plans for lockdown 4.

The Delhi government’s submission to the central government on the fourth phase of the lockdown starting May 18 wants restrictions to apply only to so-called containment zones and not entire districts which are labelled red zones by the union health ministry and will also contain protocols for the staggered opening of markets and malls, more construction and industrial activities, and the resumption of public transport including the metro.

The submission was finalized during a meeting of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.

In the proposal to the Centre, which was being prepared late into the evening of Thursday, the Delhi government will suggest that alternate shops in markets be opened every day and that one-third of the stores in malls be allowed to operate. It will also suggest doing away with the curfew between 7pm and 7am when the movement of people is curtailed. And it will recommend a heavy fine on those not wearing masks in public.

Delhi has at least 75 containment zones where even stand-alone shops and industries can’t operate, people can’t move around even in private vehicles, and electricians and plumbers are not allowed. These activities are allowed in the rest of the city — even though it is a red zone.
