Salon and gym operators have high hopes along with the restaurants and bars of Delhi in the third unlock. According to restaurant and bar operators, they can be allowed to sit and feed with 50 percent capacity. At the same time, along with the necessity of security arrangements, these salon operators are also engaged. The third unlock will start from Monday. It is believed. The Delhi government can issue guidelines regarding this soon.
what is the situation now?
So far, restaurant operators are allowed to pack and sell food and deliver food at home, which was also going on in the lockdown. While the activities of salons and gyms are completely closed. According to people associated with the government, restaurants can be allowed to sit and feed half of their capacity customers. Similarly, the activities of the salon can also be approved.
Expectations from third unlock
According to Anshu Tandon, President of Khan Market Restaurant Honors Association, there are many bars and pubs which are not in a position to pack and sell food or deliver food at home. Because they don't have that type of structure. It has been a very bad phase for them. Now it is expected that in the third unlock, following the physical distance, eating and drinking should be allowed in restaurants, bars and pubs, but business may return in a few months. According to Danish Iqbal, the operator of a restaurant located in Daryaganj, the sales are hardly 10 to 20 percent, because people do not enjoy eating outside until they sit and eat in the restaurant.
