Coronavirus: Shopping malls in Gurgaon can open next week, the authorities have said
Shopping malls in Haryana's Gurugram will reopen from next week, three months after they were closed as part of the nationwide lockdown to battle coronavirus, officials have said.
The malls will have to adhere to strict standard operating procedures or SOPs to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Religious places in Gurgaon will stay closed though.
Strict guidelines may also be announced for the containment zones in the city which is just south of Delhi.
Shopping malls have been losing money since no economic activity has taken place due to the lockdown. Owners of stores at malls say they worry about rent and other fixed cost that keep accumulating, and with hardly any sales they would find it extremely difficult to service their debts.
