Any decision on lifting the weekend curfew could be taken once the COVID-19 situation in Delhi improves further, PTI reported.

Earlier in the day, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said in a press conference that the Delhi government proposed to lift the weekend curfew, remove the odd-even system for opening shops and allow private offices in the city to run with 50 per cent staff.

He said that the proposal accepted by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been sent for the consent of Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.

He said that the decision to relax restrictions has been taken in view of the declining number of COVID cases in the city and its impact on livelihood and business activities.

Traders in several parts of the city have demanded the lifting of restrictions including the opening of shops of non-essential items on alternate days on the basis of an odd-even system.

The weekend curfew imposed because of rising in Covid cases will be in place from 10 PM Friday and continue till Monday 5 AM.
