Maharashtra government has imposed a night curfew from December 22 till January 5, 2021. The restrictions will be in place from 11 PM to 6 AM. A maximum of 4 people are allowed to assemble for any recreational activity – be it a stroll or a long drive.
Hotels and restaurants in major cities have to wind up their business by 11:30 PM making things rather worse for them. Christmas and New Year week was the time business owners were looking forward to for recovery after the blow due to lockdown.
Many diners, who had organized events and candlelight that was supposed to last till midnight, have to abide by the timing restriction.
