The Delhi government to impose a fine of Rs 500 on anyone found without a mask.


After a rise in COVID cases across the country, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) met to talk about the situation.


The Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government made mask-wearing compulsory and imposed a fine for not doing so on Friday. The government has ordered for a fine of Rs. 500 to be charged for not wearing masks in public.

Individuals riding in their four-wheelers will not be fined. Previously, the regulation was removed due to a drop in cases in Delhi. The NCR’s neighboring districts have made masks compulsory, and non-compliance is penalized.

The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) gathered on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, to discuss the issue. Face masks in public areas were made compulsory again by the government.

Pointers From the DDMA Meeting:

1. DDMA agreed not to shut schools right now but to prepare SOPs with experts.

2. Vaccination of eligible people was urged to help limit the pandemic’s effects.

3. Despite an increase in new COVID cases, some experts said there was no need to worry. For the following two weeks, hospitalization trends should be continuously monitored, and all positive RTPCR samples should be fully analyzed.

4. It was also agreed to increase the number of tests done on those experiencing symptoms.

According to government databases, there are 9,735 beds available in Delhi hospitals for COVID patients, with only 80 (or 0.82 percent) of those beds being used.
