Chandigarh, April 25

Punjab has decided not to implement MHA orders on reopening shops for now. The matter, discussed at a meeting chaired by the CM, was deferred till April 30. Meanwhile, the 20-member committee to devise a lockdown exit strategy submitted its draft report to Capt Amarinder Singh today.

The final report will be ready in three days. The committee recommendations and MHA guidelines on opening of shops will be discussed with MLAs on April 29 and at a Cabinet meeting a day later.

Sources said the committee, in its draft report, had suggested that Centre's guidelines on relaxations should be followed. It is learnt to have advised against cut in employees' salaries and advocated stricter restrictions in containment zones only. The CM had said on Friday that he would go by the advice of the committee. Of the 22 districts in Punjab, five are in green zone.
