Dimapur, April 9: Observing that wearing mask, especially in public places, making the provision of hand washing facility by various establishments, maintaining physical distancing in high risk setting etc., are often not being followed, which poses a serious risk of infection not only to the defaulters but also to other people around them, Deputy Commissioner Peren, Sentiwapang Aier has issued an order for taking action against violation of the SOPs and guidelines.
As per the order issued, a penalty of Rs 100 would be imposed every time for not wearing mask in public places (including offices, banks, markets and business establishments, restaurants, hotels, public transport, social and religious gatherings or meetings, educational institutions).
A penalty of Rs 100 would be charged as first offence for not maintaining hand washing facility/hand sanitizer (shops and business establishments, restaurants and hotels), while the premises would be sealed if the same offence is committed.
The order further stated that cases would be registered against defaulters for not following other provisions of the SOPs. (Page News Service)
