Pune, 18th April 2021: Action was taken against eight food stalls in the city for not following the Coronavirus disease (COVID19) prevention order properly. The action was taken by the officers of the encroachment department of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC).

As the government has imposed strict restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus, the hotels and food stalls are only allowed to provide parcel service from Monday to Friday between 7 am to 6 pm, but these stalls allowed customers to eat the food on their premises, which is not allowed according to the rule. Therefore action has been taken against these stalls.
