Lockdown in Chandigarh today

Wednesday, 21 April 2021 | PNS | Chandigarh

To prevent mass gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic, the UT Administration on Tuesday decided to impose lockdown on the occasion of Ram Navami in Chandigarh on Wednesday. All non-essential movement will be prohibited.

To break the chain of transmission of coronavirus, the administration has also decided to impose weekend lockdown from 8.00 pm on April 23 (Friday) till 5.00 am on April 25 (Monday). The night curfew timings on non-lockdown days will be from 8.00 pm to 5. 00 am, instead of 10:00 pm. This decision was taken in a high-level meeting chaired by UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore here in Chandigarh.

In the meeting, it was decided that the proposal for 7 days lockdown will be considered in the War Room meeting on April 23 and a decision will be taken after taking into account the number of covid cases in the city.

Manoj Parida, Adviser, stated that the Union Home Secretary has directed that strict enforcement measures should be taken.

The Administrator directed the Police Authorities to be extremely strict in enforcing lockdown instructions and the night curfew.  All violators must be strictly dealt with.  If necessary, the vehicles should be seized and a heavy fine should be imposed on those indulging in non-essential travel or those violating the covid protocol.
