Accordingly, the travel restrictions imposed from 11.00 pm to 4.00 am daily will no longer be in effect.

As per the new guidelines, meetings and other such gatherings will be permitted with no more than 150 people present.

Restaurants too, will be permitted to operate with a maximum of 75 people present, while outdoor restaurants will be allowed to accommodate 100 people.

The restrictions on wedding ceremonies were also further relaxed, permitting the accommodation of 100 people in wedding halls, and 150 people for outdoor ceremonies.
