After the relaxation given by the Central and the state governments, the shops and markets were opened after a long time on Tuesday concerning sanitation in the capital markets.
On 28 May 2020, Thursday Traders body CAIT wrote a letter to Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Anil Baijal saying that even 10 days after the opening of the shops in the market, no sanitation operations have commenced in the markets of the capital, which raises the risk of spread of COVID-19.
In an emergency meeting of the Delhi Government, “Police and other concerned departments should be conducted with Trade representatives to make the outlines of the strategies helpful in combating COVID-19 in markets”, the traders’ body said.
“We are constrained to bring to your kind notice that even after 10 days of the opening of shops, no sanitation operations have commenced in any market of Delhi.”

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) said in its letter, “The commercials market which is the first contact point of the people are in a very shabby condition, dirt and filth can be seen anywhere, loads of garbage’s can be seen in the market which has become a potential source of spreading of Corona in Delhi”.
Praveen Khandelwal, secretary-general, CAIT said that as the economy is opening due to the lack of sanitary conditions in the market the risk of the spread of the coronavirus increases and can lead to pushup in the cases. He further said “Municipal authorities have not visited most of the market places.”
“There is no inspection of any authority for visualizing the situation on the ground level of commercial markets and it seems that very casual and lethargic attitude is being adopted by Government Authorities”, CAIT further said.
