Contrary to the previous decision, no more of self-induced market lockdown in Indore now

Markets are set to go back to their usual pace.

Keeping in sight the situation of surging cases in the city, earlier the Trader Unions of Indore had induced a self-formulated weekend market lockdown till the 15th of October. Now, the city traders have withdrawn from this voluntary decision and markets are set to go back to their usual pace. Henceforth, on Saturdays, the markets in Indore will be fully functional and on Sundays, not all markets will remain shut.

Expect busy weekends again

On the 2nd of October, business establishments and market officials in the city, had issued a notice to the member traders about concluding the self-induced shutdown. Traders have also mentioned that almost every activity has gone back to its previous normalcy so there is no logical reasoning behind keeping the shops closed.

In a meeting with the district collector of Indore last month, traders had pitched in their verdict of voluntarily closing their shops on Saturday-Sunday. The purpose behind the move was to arrest the spread of the contagious COVID-19, nevertheless, many traders had already pulled out of this discretionary settlement in the initial time period.
