Chandigarh, May 5

Chandigarh administration has refused to allow liquor shops and hardware stores to remain open in the union territory—a decision that comes a day after Punjab government eased its restrictions a little to liquor vends, grocery stores and hardware shops to keep open during lockdown hours on weekdays.

“As directed by Hon'ble High Court, data on availability of hospital beds will be uploaded daily on Chandigarh Administration website. A special oxygen helpline set up too," says UT advisor Manoj Parida said on Wednesday.

Chandigarh administration enforced a near total lockdown from 5 pm May 5 to 5 am on May 11. Non-essential shops have been ordered strictly to remain closed during these hours. Government offices must function at 50 per cent capacity while private offices must ensure remote working during this period.
