The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation notified that after an evaluation of the situation the decision whether to open the shopping malls in the city will be taken. Shopping malls have been closed in Odisha from 16th March.

Odisha was one of the few States where shopping malls were closed during Unlock 1.0. The Centre’s Unlock 1.0 plan, had allowed malls, restaurants, and religious places to open from June 8, except those in containment zones.
