U

Now, we have reached the fourth phase of economic reopening. Let's look at things that will change in all major cities across India in the Unlock 4.0.

Delhi-NCR to get Metro on Track

Delhi Metro Services is halted since 22 March in Delhi. However, reports suggest that the service is most likely to resume in Delhi and the National capital region from 1 September amid Unlock 4.0. There are possibilities that the benefits may continue at 50% capacity at first. There will be no token system; hence passengers will need to get used to the contactless system for ticketing. 

However, the authorities have still imposed the lockdown. Things that will remain shut include schools, colleges, theatres, auditorium. As per several reports, officials may allow bars to sell liquor for takeaway. 

 

Unlock 4.0 in Bengaluru

Karnataka has relaxed its restrictions on interstate travel. Officials are most likely to resume pubs and bars in Bengaluru. The move is likely to offer significant relief to the hospitality sector in Bengaluru. However, there are no reports regarding the restarting cinema halls and educational institutes. The city’s metro services have been shut for over five months, waiting for the government’s green light. 

 

Bi-weekly Lockdown in Kolkata

The domestic flights from hotspots of COVID-19 are to resume from 1 September. However, Kolkata is still living under a complete lockdown bi-weekly. Only essential services will be allowed during the time. There are no signs of the opening of schools and colleges until 20 September. The reports suggest that pubs and clubs are likely to open from next month.

 

Unlock 4.0 in Mumbai

All shops and malls got a green flag to remain open throughout the week in August. There are also high requests to open gyms and gardens. However, Mumbaikar may learn to live without local trains for some more time. Currently, local trains are only available for those who are part of essential services.

Furthermore, the local police of Mumbai are determined to keep the outdoor activities at minimal. They have also warned the locals that if they cannot justify their reasons for being out, they will impound vehicles.  

 

Unlock 4.0 in Chennai

Subramanian Swaminathan, a Chennai-based contagious diseases expert (1), alleged recently that the city’s COVID-19 growth rate was “past its peak”. However, the Chennai state government is not likely to take risks. Despite the Centre’s directive, people will continue to need e-passes for an inter-state and inter-district transfer. The restrictions on office-goers, liquor shops, and hotels, amongst others, maybe relieved.
