We're officially in the third phase of lockdown now and whether it's a boon or a bane is still debatable. What's new, though? Well, the Central Government has divided the country into three main zones, red, orange, and green, and decided to ease the restrictions in green and orange zones.
To be precise, there are 319 districts of the country as green zones, 284 as orange and 130 as red zones. Here's a breakdown of the zones in Telangana & Andhra Pradesh, and what services are available in each zone.
In Telangana, there are six red, 18 orange, and nine green zones whereas, Andhra Pradesh has five red, seven orange, and one green zone.
Red zones include Hyderabad, Vikarabad, Warangal Urban, orange zones include Medak, Nalgonda, Nizamabad, and green zones include Warangal Rural, Nagarkurnool, and Siddipet.
Red zones in Andhra Pradesh include Kurnool, Guntur, Krishna, orange zones include West Godavari, Vizag, Srikakulam, and green zones include Vizianagaram.
What services are available?
Just like you all, we've been waiting for services like courier and cabs to kick in (to name a few), and just for that green and orange zones can rejoice now because the odds are favouring them. Here's what is going to happen.
If you're in living in a red zone, there's still time for you to access non-essential services like cabs, malls, salons, etc. Until then, stay indoors and stay safe. for emergencies, check out Alyte cab service.
People in orange zones can now avail cab services with one passenger and driver, only. The inter-district movement will be allowed for essentials with government permission. That's some relief, right? Order away those groceries that you've been wanting for a long time now because more delivery slots will be open now. Check out services like Supr Daily, Dmart Ready, and Daily Ninja.
Green zone peeps, consider yourself lucky. All activities are permitted except for those that are still restricted to PAN India. This means you can resume your online shopping (non-essentials, too), check out stores and salons that will (slowly) open in your area, and breathe a sigh of relief.
Travel via air, rail, the metro, all kinds of public gatherings are still prohibited for the time being, for all right reasons.
