Tamil Nadu govt permits reopening of textile showrooms

Tamil Nadu, Chennai

The Tamil Nadu government announced re-opening of textile showrooms and jewelleries in 23 districts from June 28, 2021 by relaxing lockdown norms. This was done due to pleas and opinions from people and trader’s bodies.

The establishments can operate from 9 am to 7 pm with 50 per cent customers and cannot run air conditioners in their shops, according to the Chief Minister M K Stalin. Earlier, the government had allowed a number of relaxations after categorising the 38 districts in the state into three separate groups in keeping with the incidence of covid-19 cases for the purpose of easing curbs.

The first category of 11 districts-seven in western parts (including Coimbatore) and four in Cauvery delta region like Thanjavur, have relatively higher number of coronavirus cases. The 23 districts in the second category include Ariyalur, Cuddalore, Dharmapuri, Dindigul, Kallakurichi, Kanyakumari, Krishnagiri, Madurai, Perambalur, Pudukottai, Ramanathapuram, Ranipet and Sivaganga.

The government's relaxations in lockdown norms, include re-opening places of worship and malls in the third category-Chennai, Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram and Chengalpet and resumption of public transport among others in the 23 districts coming under the second one.
