As the Maharashtra government imposed stricter lockdown-like restrictions starting on Wednesday evening, April 14, a major cause of concern for residents of Mumbai is the availability of house helps during this period.

Many Mumbaikars raised these questions -- "Will maids and house helps be allowed?” -- from the time the Janata curfew was declared. This comes as last year, during the lockdown phase, no house help and maids were allowed to resort to their work for nearly three to four months, which affected their income and livelihoods.

Responding to these questions, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) chief Iqbal Singh Chahal clarified saying that the civic body will issue detailed guidelines today on April 14, regarding this.

Besides, Chahal has assured that domestic help and maids will be permitted by the civic body to travel and continue with their work during the period from April 14 to April 30.

Moreover, BMC additional commissioner Suresh Kakani also said a fresh set of orders will be issued on Wednesday before 8 pm as clarification for the residents of Mumbai. The BMC guidelines will explain which works or services can remain open during the period, added Kakani.

Under the 'Break the Chain' initiative, several establishments and non-essential services across Mumbai as well as the rest of Maharashtra will remain shut till April 30, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said on Tuesday.

These restrictions came in light of the alarming rise in the number of new coronavirus cases reported in the past couple of months.
