Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (EP)

Udupi, Mar 28: Deputy commissioner of Udupi G Jagadeesha has imposed additional restrictions on the movement of people and business hours of shops till April 14 during the nationwide lockdown.

In a press release, he stated that movement of people is restricted under CRPC section 144(3) to prevent spread of coronavirus. But shopkeepers are permitted to sell items of daily use such as vegetable, milk, fruits, meat, fish etc. by following social distancing.

The infected cases in Bhatkal and Dakshina Kannada are increasing day by day. In the circumstances it is necessary to limit the services rendered to people. In Karkala, buying of items is allowed only between 7 am and 11 am on experimental basis. The practice has been successful.

Therefore, it is decided to permit sales of grocery, medicine and other essential items only between 7 am and 11 am. The shops which sell such essential items are allowed to open their shops only during the stipulated duration. Citizens will have buy items of their daily needs such as vegetables, fruits, milk, meat and fish only within that period. Social distance between each other should be maintained mandatorily during shopping. The shops should be closed within the specified time. The restrictions do not apply to medical shops.

Criminal cases will be registered and legal action will be taken if people are seen unnecessarily going about on roads, stated the deputy commissioner in the official release.

    Why Not Liquor shop are also be opened for 4 hours a day.. Alcohol is not necessity for everyone but For people who are addicted, It can be Life threatening for them, as sudden withdrawal of alcohol can lead many serious health problems like Seizure, Headaches, vertigo, Depression, Vaiolating Behavior, BP , Neurological issue like strokes, and even death.. Quitting Alcohol is not difficult, but it has to go with systematic treatment.. Not by sudden withdrawal of Alcohol due to lockdown..
    Shutting down Wine shops like this cant get a person out of alcoholism, it will only create health issues n trauma in drinkers which will soon stess the hospitals n staff, in such a disasterous situation of COVID 19.

    First of all no grocery shops open at 7am. I want to know which shop opens by 7.
    They open by 8. So 8 to 11 is only 3 hours. That would mean people would panic and large crowd comes for groceries. This is a dangerous situation. Also some selfish pricks are going for groceries everyday and storing in their house for 2-3 months. Again not a good thing.

    What utter madness!

    If OK to buy groceries between 7-11AM...

    ... why is not OK to buy groceries between 7 AM - 7 PM?

    Does the virus take a long smoking break between 7-11AM?

    What utter madness!

    True, the more time it's open, the better will be the crowd distribution & lesser anxiety for the public!!

    Please pass me a helpline number to complain against the shopkeepers who are taking extra money. This is ridiculous. Even during this worst time they are thinking about business.

    Some people are stocking food and lining up every day in front of groceries as if it is going to be end of the world for all others except themselves. This is how we Indians react during the time of crisis. Meanwhile due to lock down there are hundreds of humans and stray animals starving with no one to feed them. God is the only help.
