Benachity Market closing time changed. See new timings

[Update 19th July: New Rules announced regarding COVID situation in Durgapur.]

Durgapur: The number of positive cases in Durgapur is increasing rapidly.

The Durgapur Municipal Corporation have already decided to remain closed till 31st July for the general public to prevent the spread.

In the initial stages of the lockdown, the Benachity Market area was under strict lockdown.

The fish and vegetable markets were also shifted to new locations to maintain social distancing.

But as time passed, everything went back to as they were before.

Now a days, social distancing is hardly seen in the markets across Durgapur. Even people are not wearing masks properly.

On 17th July, a jewellery shop owner of a commercial complex in Benachity tested positive. This made the Chamber of Commerce to change the timings of Benachity Market.

After the reports came the commercial complex was sealed. The commercial complex also houses a post office and a bank.

Shops in and around the complex were also closed as a mandatory step.

After his report came, the Durgapur Chamber of Commerce issued a notice, stating that Benachity Bazar will be closed by 5PM everyday.

This step is taken as a preventive measure to stop the spread.

Some sources have also claimed that Durgapur Club is also sealed because the jewellery shop owner hosted a party at that club a few days back.
