According to the notification issued by Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) Commissioner Radhakrishnan B dated September 1, the civic body has scrapped the odd-even rule and permitted the opening of all non-essential shops ? on only one side of the road, or located on the road with dividers, from September 2.

Shopkeepers, traders and public representatives like Nagpur Vidarbha Chambers of Commerce (NVCC) had earlier, heavily opposed the odd-even rule, which was enforced by NMC on June 5 this year.
As per the new rule, shops on both sides of the road, where a divider exists, would be allowed to function. The rule would also be applicable for all non-essential shops in case they are standalone too. 
All non-essential shops would be permitted to remain open all days along the roads where there are no shops on the other side. Shops that do not meet the criteria, such non-essential shops would be allowed to open on alternate days (P1 and P2 basis), as per earlier guidelines thus extending the time up to 9 pm from the existing 7 pm time limit.
However, the new rule would not be applicable to the shops located in areas like Itwari, Mahal, Gandhibagh, etc, where the roads are narrow and there are no medians. They would continue to follow the odd and even rule till September 30. 
Liquor shops will continue to operate, as per earlier guidelines. 
Hotels and lodges would be allowed to operate at 100% capacity, as per separate SOP, which will be issued by State Government, for necessary precautions to be taken while operating these establishments. 
Moreover, schools, colleges, educational and coaching institutions will remain closed till September 30. Online/ distance learning shall continue to be permitted and shall be encouraged
Cinema halls, Swimming pools, entertainment parks, theatres (including that in malls and market complexes), bars, auditorium, assembly halls and similar places will also remain prohibited. 
International air travel of passengers as permitted by Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), operation of Metro Rail along with social/ political/ sports/ entertainment/ academic/ cultural/ religious functions and other large congregations would also remain prohibited.
