Speaking to Knocksense, a local shop-owner Rajkumar Gupta, informed that the COVID lockdown had reduced the work to less than half of usual operations. He added that given the high manufacturing costs, it is difficult to conduct dealings at a small scale. With dampened levels of demand, the prices are increasing and the customer count continues to be low. Due to this, the earnings and profits have reduced sharply.

While Tasveer Wali Gali is loved by local residents, the market also welcomes shoppers from Sitapur, Lakhimpur, Pratapgarh, Amethi, Jagdishpur, Rae Bareli and surrounding areas.
