TN Government Allows Construction
The state government on Thursday issued an order relaxing certain activities, including work under MGNREGA and construction activities in rural areas, in coronavirus non-containment zones across the state. It has also permitted state and central government offices to function for maintaining essential services with attendance not exceeding 33% of the total staff strength.
The government also clarified on the list of ‘continuous process industries’ exempted from restrictions, based on requests from industrial bodies. This includes refineries, large steel plants (including TMT bar manufacturers), cement plants, chemical industries, including paint, sugar mills, fertilizers, float glass plants, large foundries, and tyre manufacturing plants and paper mills.
