RCCI President Saboor Malik in a statement said that the lockdown is due until April 14th, prompting the district administration to consult with the business community and the Chamber of Commerce regarding SOPs. He suggested that district Government must ensure all protective measures being disseminate to all business centres prior opening the lock down. The guidelines must be observed strictly and awareness drive will also be continued for everyone for wearing masks, sprays and social distances.
