NMC Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe declared list of new containment zones with boundaries at Shivshakti Enclave, Dahibazaar Pool, Maskasath chowk, Chakna chowk, Mahajan Kirana, and Rokde building. People living in the above areas won’t be allowed to leave their homes unless something extremely urgent like medical emergency. Also, people from other areas won’t be allowed to enter these areas too.
However, the wholesale market of food grains has been exempted from being tagged as containment zone as the city as well other districts procure food grains from Itwari.
