Chief minister Vijay Rupani has announced that petrol pumps operating on the highways will not have to close down as per the relaxation given for Lockdown4.0. This means the petrol pumps can operate 24/7. This decision has been taken to ensure that trucks and other vehicles travelling on the highway do not find themselves stranded because of shortage of fuel.
The government had earlier allowed business and shops to function subject to certain rules. One of them was that such units can remain open only between 8 am and 4 pm.
The CM has also announced that the odd even rule for opening of shops will not be applicable to those selling essential items. This means they can open shops every day. But the rest of the business units and shops will have to follow the odd even rule. No movement is allowed in the city post 7 pm upto 7 am.
