The new COVID-19 guidelines issued by the BMC permits online home delivery of food and essential goods for 24 hours on all days.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) issued directives, an extension of those issued on April 7. It clarified that some workers and services would be exempt from restrictions under the government's ‘Break the Chain’ order. The guidelines allowed 24-hours online delivery of foods and essential supplies. Food supply service providers like Zomato, Swiggy, and roadside food stalls can provide parcel and takeaway services. The relaxation is also provided to others, such as maids, cooks, nurses, and drivers.
