Most of the traders in the survey have demanded to free the markets from Covid restrictions, the survey revealed. The trader’s body has suggested in a letter to Baijal that the odd-even system has not only proved to be a failure in Delhi but has also caused more trouble to the consumers. In this context, the odd-even and weekly lock-down should be removed and more emphasis should be put on the strict implementation of Covid protocols, CAIT added. It has suggested that the working hours of markets should be changed from 10 am to 5 pm, while hotels and restaurants should be allowed to open with 50 percent capacity as given to private offices.

According to a survey conducted by the Confederation of All India Traders, an overwhelming majority of traders in the national capital support lifting the Covid restrictions and opening the markets on all weekdays. The dealers’ group also stated that it has written to Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal, requesting that the Covid restrictions in the national capital be relaxed. “Continued Covid limitations in the nation’s capital Delhi, at a time when the positive rate is falling by the day, has enraged Delhi traders to a large proportion,” CAIT added.
