In a recently announced decision, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has permitted the businesses in South Mumbai's Fashion Street to resume operations from Wednesday, September 23, 2020.

As per reports, these shops have been given a conditional permission by the municipality, and as a result, the small businesses and stall-owners who have been facing business-related issues for the last 6 months have breathed a sigh of relief. 

Mumbai's Fashion Street is popular among the locals and the tourists, as it is one of the thriving areas in Mumbai for ardent shoppers. It is marked as one of the important places known in Mumbai, as the market here is visited by lakhs of people on a daily basis. The best aspect of the place is the locality of a short distance from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. Youngsters often visit the area to buy clothes and to pass time.

The BMC in an order issued March 18, 2020, asked the shops to close in this South Mumbai market, due to the spread of coronavirus. The outbreak announcement was followed by a complete lockdown that was imposed in Mumbai on March 24, 2020. Due to the pandemic, shops here remained shut for over six months and were allowed to open gradually after the lockdown rules were relaxed by the state government.

Keeping the troubles in mind, and with a hope to find a solution, the welfare association had written to the municipality requesting permission to start shops, and observing the troubles and accepting the request, officials at the BMC permitted the same, with strict guidelines and actions.
