Shimla, January 5
With Covid cases showing a decline in the state, the Himachal Pradesh Government today decided to lift night curfew in Shimla, Mandi, Kullu and Kangra districts from tomorrow.
The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur. The Cabinet also allowed coaching centres to operate at 50 per cent capacity. The Health Department will issue standard operating procedures for the centres. It also decided to restore the usual six-day week schedule in government offices.
On the State Election Commission’s request, the Cabinet relaxed the condition of allowing not more than 50 persons at indoor meetings so that the commission could conduct poll training. — TNS
