Delhi Govt. Has raised the Penalty for not wearing mask in public from Rs 500 to Rs 2,000 – New Delhi Times

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that due to increase in the COVID-19 cases in Delhi, penalty for not wearing masks in public places will be increased from Rs500 to Rs2,000. He also said that the government has issued orders to all private hospitals to reserve 80% of their ICU beds and 60% of non-ICU beds for Covid-19 patients and postpone dates of non-critical surgeries.

He has also requested to social, religious and political organisations to distribute masks and urge people to wear masks. The police and the government’s revenue department are the enforcement agencies which can prosecute individuals for not wearing masks in public places.

The chief minister urged all the political leaders to join hands and  fight against Covid-19 and direct their volunteers to distribute masks across the city.

Similar directions were issued in May and June as well, when the city had witnessed the first sharp rise in Covid-19 cases but later some of them were relaxed when the cases went down.

The chief minister appreciated the role of healthcare professionals in Delhi during the pandemic and urged people to celebrate Chhath Puja at home this year.
