The Maharashtra Government has decided to restrict timings of grocery shops. Now grocery shops in the state will only remain open from 7 am to 11 am. Even after strict restrictions many citizens are found roaming around in the name of grocery purchase. Hence, the state government has imposed these new restrictions.
In order to increase oxygen availability, the state government has instructed all the district administrations to establish oxygen production plants. All the rights in this regard are given to them.

All other administrations have been asked to follow the procedure and rates adopted by these administrations.
