The DC Srinagar said this over the district administration having received a memorandum by the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI) over the opening of marketplaces and business establishments in a phased manner.

The same was being examined and whatever decision is taken, will be taken by the State Executive Committee J&K in consultation with all the stakeholders, news agency KNO quoted DC Srinagar as saying at Press Enclave Srinagar on the sidelines of a special COVID-19 vaccination drive for journalists.

Although the daily cases in Srinagar have witnessed a relative drop for the past few days, DC Srinagar warmed against lowering of guard.

“There are still more than 6000 active cases, so there is no chance of any sort of relaxation in the curfew. We have to follow the SOPs strictly including social distancing, wearing face masks and particularly vaccination,” Aijaz said.

He urged the eligible citizens to get the jabs during the ongoing drive.

“Like the first wave, we will also come out of the second COVID-19 wave successfully provided everyone contributes his bit,” he said.

The DC Srinagar said that a COVID-19 vaccination drive has been started and priority will be given to the most vulnerable groups including journalists, shopkeepers, vendors, milkmen, vegetable vendors and orphans registered with Social Welfare Department, construction workers and maximum mobility groups, who fall in the age group of 18-45 years.
