In the wake of the rapid surge in case of Covid-19, the Maharashtra Government has issued fresh curbs for Private Offices, Theatres and Auditoriums with effect from 31st March 2021.

All private offices, theatres and auditoriums except related to health and other essential services to function at 50% capacity in line with the order dated March 15,” according to Chief Secretary Sitaram Kunte.

As regards the government or semi-government offices, the head of the office will decide with respect to staff attendance, besides ensuring compliance with all coronavirus-related protocols.
