Maharashtra announces five-level unlock plan

Easing lockdown-like-curbs currently enforced in the state, the Maharashtra government late Friday night issued a detailed notification to unlock the state.

The fresh, ‘five-level lockdown plan’ will come into effect from Monday and will be based on the positivity rate and occupancy of beds in each district and cities, the order states.

According to the notifications the Disaster Management Authority shall enforce these levels of restrictions over administrative units falling under its jurisdiction.

The order states that districts and cities falling under ‘Level 1’ will have the least restrictions and those under ‘Level 5’ will have maximum curbs. Mumbai falls under Level 2 of the restriction plans.

Level 1 districts include Nagpur, Thane , Nanded, Nashik, Aurangabad, Bhandara, Buldhana, Parbhani and Yavatmal. Level 2 includes Ahmednagar, Amravati, Hingoli and Dhule.

In Level 3, Akola, Beed, Palghar, Ratnagiri, Kolhapur, Osmanabad, Sangli, Satara, Sindhudurg and Solapur will fall.
