The G20 Leaders’ Summit is scheduled to be held from September 9-10 at the newly built international convention and exhibition centre, Bharat Mandapam at Pragati Maidan. Since the G20 is a high-profile meeting, several restrictions are imposed in the New Delhi district including the suspension of all online delivery and commercial services during that time.
All cloud kitchens, commercial establishments, markets, food delivery, and commercial delivery services will be shut for three days in the New Delhi district, PTI reported.
“We can’t allow cloud kitchen and food delivery services. Internet delivery companies such as Amazon and Flipkart will also not be allowed to operate in the controlled zone. Delivery executives can take medicines and essential items,” Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) SS Yadav said on September 4 during a press conference.
“Cloud kitchens and food deliveries, or any commercial deliveries like Amazon deliveries, will not be allowed as we have stopped commercial services in the NDMC area,” Special Commissioner of Police SS Yadav added.
However, the delivery of essential medical items, including lab reports and sample collections, will be permitted throughout the city. Vehicles for hotels, hospitals, and other significant installations in the New Delhi District that are involved in housekeeping, catering, trash disposal, etc. will be permitted following verification.
”Essential services such as postal and medical services, sample collections by path labs will be allowed throughout Delhi,” Mr Yadav added.
The senior officer also added that barring the Supreme Court station, metro services will not be affected.
”There might be closure of gates for 10-15 minutes at stations due to VIP movement and security restrictions. But apart from at Pragati Maidan (Supreme Court), metro services will not be affected at other stations,” he added.
Meanwhile, all Central government offices in the national capital will be closed from September 8 to 10 considering the G20 summit.
