Online food delivery services will be prohibited in the New Delhi region from September 8 to 10, as the Delhi Police will be imposing tight security precautions and traffic restrictions.
“Cloud kitchens and food deliveries, as well as any commercial deliveries such as Amazon deliveries, will not be permitted,” Special Commissioner of Police SS Yadav stated.
However, in response to reports of a city lockdown, the Delhi Police Department confirmed that there will be no lockdown during the G20 Summit.
“Dear Delhiites, don’t be afraid! There is no lockdown in place. Simply stay up to date with traffic information accessible on @dtpftraffic’s Virtual Help Desk,” the Delhi Police said on X (previously Twitter).
In addition, elaborate traffic plans have been announced in the city. The Gurugram Traffic Police issued an advice stating that vehicular access into Delhi will be limited from midnight on September 7 to midnight on September 10. The Dhaula Kuan route would be most affected by the traffic restrictions. On September 8, police also recommended Gurugram businesses to implement work-from-home rules.
From September 8 to September 10, the Delhi government has announced a public holiday in the national capital. In light of the summit, the government has also urged owners of shops, businesses, and commercial institutions in the city to grant paid leaves to their employees and workers on September 8, 9, and 10.
The city of Delhi will be on “high alert” throughout the summit. Over a lakh security officers will be stationed throughout the city as Delhi invites foreign leaders.
