Panchkula, May 23

Rahul (19), working with Licious, a meat delivery company, is waiting for a customer outside the gate of GH-79 Sandeep Vihar (AWHO Housing Complex) in Sector 20 as he is not being allowed to make the delivery on the doorstep.

“Since we are not allowed to enter the housing society, we call the customer to collect their food,” he said.

Even as the Panchkula administration has issued an order allowing the entry of maids and delivery boys in housing societies, things are yet to fall in place.

Chanda, a maid from Khark Mangoli, said, “Our employers are not calling us back to work and the government is not making arrangements to send us back home. We are helpless.”

Parveen Kataria, president, RWA, Sector 4 Mansa Devi Complex, said, “Maids are still not allowed in residential areas of our sector due to fear of contracting the virus. However, some residents are still calling their maids to help them in household chores. They don’t listen to us.” He said they were unaware of any administrative order on restoration of maids’ services. — TNS
