Mangaluru: 'Shops licence to be cancelled if Covid rules are violated more than thrice' - DC


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Sep 24: Dakshina Kannada district deputy commissioner (DC) Dr Rajendra K V, clarified that wearing of masks is mandatory in all rural and urban local body limits and also the city corporation limits. "It is mandatory for people employed in hotels, restaurant, commercial complexes, malls, shops and also those visiting them to wear masks. Social distancing norms must be maintained at any cost. It is the responsibility of shop owners to strictly enforce social distance and other rules. They need to take all precautions to make sure that rules are not violated," he clarified.

"The shopkeepers have to install automatic sanitiser system in the front and encourage customers to use them. Health of all the employees should be checked every day and the shops should be sanitised every three days. Staff should be deployed in the front for subjecting customers to thermal scanning. If symptoms of fever are observed, their name, telephone numbers and address should be noted down and these particulars should be passed on to the health officer of their jurisdiction or city corporation. Immediately on getting this information, the city corporation or district administration should send the persons concerned to Covid care centres by ambulance," he stated.

He said that the Mangaluru city commissioner, and chief officers of local bodies, should appoint a nodal officer in their jurisdictions to ensure that Covid rules are followed without fail and the district administration should be kept posted. At the time of unloading fish from boats and engaging in fish trade, government guidelines should be followed without fail. The deputy director of fisheries department should pay special attention and keep an eye on them, he added.

The DC said that in case of shops which are found violating rules relating to wearing of masks, social distancing etc they will be fined Rs 1,000 for the first offence, and the fine will go up to Rs 2,000 and 3,000 for second and third violations for which warning sill be issued. If conditions are found to have been violated more than thrice, their licences should be cancelled. For this, the local bodies have to implement bylaws for the same, he instructed. Non-wearing of masks attracts Rs 200 fine in cities and Rs 100 in other areas.

KSRTC passengers should wear masks and follow other rules. The divisional controller has to take steps to ensure the same. In case of private buses, autos, cabs etc if there is violation, the regional transport officers should penalise the vehicle owners. Police officers too have to regularly conduct checks, the DC said.

    Bars, malls, markets people are sitting/moving within kissing distance, nobody to check on them

    These places where crowds gather should not have been opened so soon; the pandemic will flareup & it appears the peak is no where near due to haphazard unscientific decisions by people who know nothing about the pandemic but only in saving their positions & diverting attention of the public by giving 24/7 media publicity on SSR case & Bollywood drug connections, what a pitiable state of affairs!
    God save us !

    Sir,
    Send your flying squad to bars & restaurants late evenings and see how rules are being flouted rampantly by cash hungry bar owners!
    Giving instructions by sitting in closed cabins & enforcing them at ground level are two different things!
    All this flouting of rules cannot be done without collusion or enforcing authorities!

    Corona crisis will worsen in the times to come with people venturing into densely populated areas!

    Now, only God can save us!

    Well ordered by the honorable D.C. but who is going to implement?There is a saying charity begins at home, kindly visit your offices in all your office hope you will be the only person with mask.Making rules is not important but regularly hectic check up is mostly appreciated.My locality you will be astonished see that 80% people donot use mask at all.

    bus drivers dont wear mask.
    conductors wear mask and its tied to their neck. i have seen this myself

    auto drivers - few are following rules since they are scared of infected from passengers
    majority same- on chin. just name sake.

    no one bothers .

    but in KMC they check and send inside. but who knows while they come out they might be infected from staff or from other patients..???

    any how now we have to live in this corona- but we should take precaution and protect ourself.

    Really good measures. I feel there is intention to bring some rules even though its pretty late. Thank you for bringing out these rules. The main thing is the awareness and implementation. COVID situation in Mangalore can be controlled provided proper awareness is created and rules are implemented strictly. People and authorities needs to behave responsibly too.

    There are some interior places in Bajal where nobody wears mask or they maintain social distance. People will be chitchatting in corners without mask or social distancing.They will be smoking in public place without botheration .Concerned authorities should look into the matter so that Covid spread can be contained.
