Maharashtra to unlock in five levels

The Maharashtra government decided to ease COVID restrictions across the state in a phased manner. Yesterday, the state government announced that the unlock strategy would be in five levels.

Here is the unlock strategy of the Maharashtra government:

In level 1, lockdown restrictions will be lifted in districts where there is less than five per cent of positive rate and 25 per cent of oxygen bed occupancy. Levels 1 unlock will be in cities or districts include Aurangabad, Nashik, Nanded, Thane, Nagpur, Bhandara, Buldhana, Jalgaon, Latur, Chandrapur, Dhule, Gondia, Gadchiroli, Jalna, Wardha, Parbhani, Washim, and Yavatmal. Here almost all activities like marriages, shootings, social gatherings etc., will be allowed. Besides, public and private offices, malls, shops, restaurants, gyms, beauty parlours or salons, theatres, and local trains will be permitted to reopen.

In level 2, Section 144 is in force. Gyms, beauty parlours, and salons are allowed to reopen with 50 per cent capacity. However, there will be restrictions on the number of people to attend events like marriages. Mumbai, Ahmednagar, Hingoli, Amaravati, and Nandurbar fall in this category.


Akola, Beed, Kolhapur, Solapur, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Satara, Sangli, Palghar, Usmanabad, and are listed in level 3.

Pune and Raigad fall in the level 4 category.

All cities and districts falling in level 5 have many restrictions as there is a high number of COVID-19 cases in these places. An e-pass is essential to travel to these areas. However, there is no need to carry an RTPCR report for intra-state transport. Level 5 is a red zone where the lockdown will be in force.

Initially, the government announced the unlock plan to be in force from today. However, Maharashtra Relief and Rehabilitation minister Vijay Waddettiwar said that the government had not yet decided the date of the unlock. Hence, lockdown rules will be in force till further announcement from the government.
