The corporation also added that all malls, market complexes & markets shall remain closed in urban areas, i.e. areas within the limits of Municipal Corporations and municipalities. However, shops selling essential goods in markets complexes are permitted.
Liquor shops in Mumbai will remain closed from Wednesday as the Mumbai Municipal Corporation has decided to let only essential services function in the city. On Tuesday Mumbai Municipal Commissioner Praveen Pardeshi issued an order saying that only ‘groceries, medical/ chemist shops will be allowed to be opened’. The development comes in the back of huge crowds thronging the liquor shops in Mumbai and the police machinery simply unable to control the crowds.
