The NCOC saw that since 16 significant urban areas of the nation were exceptionally touchy these days because of Covoid-19 inspiration among the individuals, the “non-drug mediations” (NPIs) or new rules would stay in power till January 2021.

The NCOC official said a model for authorization of Face Mask wearing was being executed under which those fined Rs100 for not wearing cover would be given three covers on the spot. “Actually it’s anything but a fine; the cash to be gotten as fine will be used to purchase mask for the violator so he/she can wear cover at the spot,” he added. 

About the prohibition on indoor relationships, the authority said just outside relationships would be permitted with maximum restriction of 1000 people. “The boycott will be upheld with impact from Nov 20 so that previously orchestrated relationships at indoor scenes can occur,” he added.
