The hospitality business is still suffering and facing due to the huge loss.
Various rules have been formed to make an entry in restaurants in order to keep the spread at bay.
After a long wait, from October 5 the restaurants in the city were opened according to the new normal and open to welcome the customers and new rules which are set by the ministry.
Since October 5 fewer crowds were seen in city restaurants with only two to three occupancy in very other eateries, the small food stalls were also seen empty and had a slow start with few people turning up to eat their favorite food.
COVID-19 is having a negative impact on the market as the business is still struggling, restaurants are facing difficulty to sustain without customers, while people prefer take-away and are hesitating to go out and eat in a restaurant.
Dominos has also begun the dine-in at various outlets but with 50% occupancy only following the rules but people are preferring on take-away to enjoy it with their family at home.
Food stalls near at VNIT gate which once was packed with youngsters who would enjoy their evening snacks with friends now have fewer crowds in post lockdown.
