Odisha government on Saturday said it will allow neighbourhood and standalone shops within the limits of municipal corporations and municipalities to open with few conditions.

In an order issued by the Revenue and Disaster Management Department and signed by Chief Secretary A K Tripathy, the government said the municipal commissioners and district collectors are expected to notify the detailed list of the types of shops that will be allowed to open and their timings within their respective jurisdictions.

“The shops registered under the Odisha Shops and Commercial Establishments Act, 1956, including shops in residential complexes and market complexes except shops in multi-brand and single brand malls, outside the limits of municipal corporations and municipalities, will be allowed,” the order read.
