Opening in Delhi: Cinemas from October 15, all weekly markets

Cinema halls across Delhi, except those falling in containment zones, have been allowed to open from October 15, according to an order issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Wednesday. The DDMA order also approved the opening of all weekly markets with immediate effect. So far, only two weekly markets could open in each zone in all the three municipal corporation areas.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a tweet that the move to allow all weekly markets to function will come as a relief to the poor. Cinemas, theatres and multiplexes in the city will open with 50 per cent seating capacity in line with the Unlock 5.0 guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs last week. The Delhi government has extended the closure of schools in the city till October 31. The MHA had, however, allowed the states to reopen schools in a phased manner from October 15.
