Lucknow in Red Zone: Know what all will open in the city from May 4

Liquor shops to operate from 10am to 7pm

Despite being in Red Zone, Lucknow has been given a number of relaxations. These relaxations however, will not apply in hotspots of the city and will only be valid for the other areas which will definitely benefit from it.


Uttar Pradesh government announced a detailed plan to restart the economy on Sunday. While a few government offices were already operational, now from Monday all state and central government offices can operate with 33% staff.

Following the central government order, the state officials have decided to open all standalone shops and liquor shops in the city. These commercial establishments will operate between 10am to 7pm and will have to adhere to all social distancing norms. All employees will have to use their own vehicle for commute as public transport will remain shut in Lucknow till May 17th.

No word on opening of restaurants for takeaway & delivery

Restaurants in Lucknow are shut since March 21, even before the national lockdown was announced. Though food delivery is operational in Delhi, there is no word yet to open it in Lucknow. We can expect this to be discussed after the successful opening of standalone shops in Lucknow.

At this stage, it is important to follow all social distancing norms and not to venture out until it is absolutely necessary. We at Knocksense believe that though offices are allowed to open, work from home is still a better way to move forward till May 17. Once our recovery rate increases, we can further decide to open offices.

The world's most elaborate vaccination programme was launched in India on January 16 by flagging off the COVID-19 inoculation drive across the nation. Launched under the care of Prime Minister, this immunisation process was authorised by prior registration on the Co-WIN mobile application which exhibited technical glitches on the first day of phase 1 drive. As a result, only 1926 out of the 4000 beneficiaries across 9 centres were administered the vaccination in Mumbai. The Co-WIN mobile application was supposed to send automated messages to the healthcare workers, listing the date and time of their immunisation, however, due to glitch in the app, beneficiaries couldn't be alerted about their designated slots on Saturday.
