The Chandigarh Beopar Mandal on Sunday wrote to the UT Administration, demanding that shops should be allowed to open in the city from 10 am to 8 pm.

Due to hot weather, customers can’t visit markets as the closing time was 6 pm, which should be extended till 8 pm in view of the revised lockdown relaxation timings, said Charanjiv Singh, chairman, CBM. “We have also requested (the UT Administration) to make it optional for traders to open their shops on Sunday too and a formal order should be issued in this regard,” he added. — TNS
