Despite the order of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to impose a fine of Rs 2000 on people who roam in public places without wearing a mask, only challans of only Rs 500 are still being deducted. The Kejriwal government has now increased the penalty amount from Rs 500 to Rs 2000 to four times for not being caught wearing masks in public places, as the Kejriwal government tightened its grip on people not wearing masks in public places.
Meanwhile, enforcement officer Ajay Prakash posted on the Delhi-Noida border said on Friday that we have cut about 15 challans here since morning with two for non-adherence to social distancing and the rest for not putting on masks. Right now we are only deducting challan of 500 rupees because we have not yet got the guidelines to challan the challan of 2000 rupees.
Please tell that, the notification has not been issued by the Delhi government to increase the amount of fine, due to which only challans of 500 rupees are being deducted.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday announced an increase in the amount of the fine after an all-party meeting called to deal with the situation in Corona. Kejriwal had said that being caught wearing a mask till now was fined Rs 500, but many people are still roaming without masks, the penalty amount has been increased to two thousand rupees for tough action on such people. .
