Meanwhile, Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal will be chairing the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) meeting on January 27 over the COVID situation in the national capital. According to news agency ANI sources, a decision may be taken to lift restrictions like weekend curfew and the odd-even system in the markets in view of the decreasing COVID cases in Delhi.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will also be present in the DDMA meeting scheduled to be held on Thursday. Last week, the Delhi government allowed all private offices in the National Capital Territory of Delhi, outside of Containment Zones, to function with upto 50 per cent attendance. The DDMA had, however, advised the private offices to stagger office timing, presence and quantum of staff.
