In its latest order for Unlock 3.0, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation on Monday allowed all shops on either side of the road to reopen on all days, including the across-the-counter sale of liquor. However, the movement of people continues to be restricted to only essential services and office work. The only outdoor activity allowed is non-team sports.

After the state government allowed malls and shopping complexes to open from Wednesday, the BMC also stated the same. People's movement for shopping and outdoor exercises has been restricted to the neighbourhood area only.
