Karnataka to partially relax coronavirus lockdown from April 23


Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Apr 22: The state government has decided to relax the lockdown and announced new guidelines to be followed from the midnight of Wednesday, April 22. But the lockdown will continue strictly in ‘Containment Zones’.

The relaxation does not mean than two-wheelers, inter-district movement or public transport will be allowed.

Permission is given to open truck repair garages, Dhabas, courier services, plumber, electrician, carpenters, cable and DTH operators, online delivery organizations for essential items and food processing units.


Chief minister B S Yediyurappa

In rural areas construction work of buildings, agricultural-related works and fishing will be allowed to function.

None of these relaxations are applicable to containment zones.

The present lockdown rules will continue for bus services, metro, auto-rickshaw, cab, trains, sale of liquor, religious functions, cinema halls, malls, IT BT companies, school and colleges.

    With due respect to CM
    Sir it's not a good decision to relax the lock down, if u ask me I would suggest u too go ahead with 3 days of janatha curfew so tat the virus curve in Karnataka goes down.. as it will help in future coming days when the lock down is surpassed..don't have or take pressure from anyone..think bout ur ppl in Karnataka if for some lame reason u relax the lock down.. its of utter waste nd ur not doing good to the ppl.
    might be noe it feels bitter but later we can be free of many things ..
    PlZ do consider the virus issue in red alert frame work..
    If NOT now.. THEN EVERYTHING GOES IN VAIN.
    THANK YOU.

    All carpenters, plumbers\electricians do Tirupathi tonsure at every place of work. ( Materials would have been bought earlier, some work started and left pending to finish) Such works can be get done. He cannot do his job at other places due to non availability of items. He gets paid for doing job at this pending place. Money may rotate in his hands.

    75% of working on informal sectors and MSMEs r already finished; at the end of lockdown, they will have to start from scratch! As the socioeconomic effects of CORONA take effect, the going will become extremely tough, much devastating than direct CORONA effect! No place to hide for a majority of the population!

    Bhandarkmaam, firstly, just to remind you, Dharavi is a part of our country, just checkout the exports done by SSIs operating there! Secondly,despite the population density of 2.5cr/sqkm, poor people are sustaining under the toughest of circumstances! They have the inherent resilience power of defeating CORONA than somebody sitting in isolation with mask & Hazmat suit on..hehe!!
    You should be proud of such places where people living in cramped spaces, in absolute harmony, producing export items & earning valuable foreign exchange! If you want to be tough one should experience life out there for a couple of months! If you can sustain there, then you can live in any part of the world...no jokes mammu!

    Bhandarkmaam, FYI on Dharavi which you thought is just a dirty slum doing nothing:

    Spread across almost 550 acres of land, and home to around 1 million people (50–60% labourers), Dharavi is one of the largest and oldest informal urban settlements of the world. It has developed over the 150 years from an island on a swampy and unused patch of land, to a much-discussed area at the heart of Mumbai.
    Dharavi is a hub for small-scale industries (unorganized sectors such as leather industry, waste recycling industry, etc), and exports goods across the globe with an estimated annual turnoverof around $ 1 billion. It has approximately 5,000 business entities, with 15,000 in-house single-room factories for production. Generally, people from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Gujarat come to work in these industries.
    According to residents of Dharavi, 60% of Mumbai’s segregated waste comes to Dharavi for processing; indicating the vital role of waste recycling and processing units of Dharavi in maintaining and managing Mumbai’s solid waste management landscape. They are not only managing the waste, but they are making big money out of it and generating employment as well. Dharavi is home to some 30,000 rag pickers — scavengers who find and sort recyclable scraps from the city’s garbage dumps.
    One can conclude, from this visit, that the Dharavi slum is far different from the general perception of the slum. It is a slum which has 5,000 different businesses, as well as industries which export the products of these businesses. It is a slum which has an annual turnover of more than $ 1 billion. The visit showed me what we can do with the waste of recycling industries and unused waste from dumps. I left with the thought that it’s not just a slum — it’s a slum with immense opportunities that lie within.

    Bhandarkmaam, reading the above facts on Dharavi hope your perception of it will totally change! Tell me of any other such industrious slum from your knowledge!
    Jai Hind!
