"So, we have written to Municipal Commissioner and State Government for a solution," he said.
"The government has decided to open the market. We urge them to provide some relaxation in the guideline for labourers and bring a scheme in wherein everyone stays safe and labourers are able to work," he added.
Lakhs of migrant labourers who come here for work are involved in stocking the sarees and dress materials in the godown and in loading the parcels which is sent to other states. They also work as salesmen in the shops.
Another businessman, Sunil Bafna said even though they have opened the shop but there is no usual business due to lack of labourers.
"Business is only possible when the labourers will get back to work. Without them the business is incomplete. Even, now we have opened the shop, but there is no business. We come, clean the dust of the shops and go back. We can not do anything without labourers," Sunil Bafna, a textile businessman told ANI.
"Labourers are not coming as they have to live in 14 days prescribed quarantine, and there is no system available to facilitate the quarantine of such people. As festivals are approaching, if the migrant comes back here, then there will be good business," he added.
The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in its Unlock 1 guidelines has said that in urban areas (outside containment zone), all standalone shops, neighbourhood shops and shops in residential complexes are allowed to open.
MHA has said that only a limited number of activities would remain prohibited throughout the country during #Unlock1, which came into effect from June 1 and will be effective till June 30.
