Medical Emergency Services Are Not Banned

Bus services will run on Ring Road and beyond it towards the Delhi borders. The movement of buses that enter Delhi from the Rajokri border is suspended until September 10.

Medical emergency vehicles are allowed to move around the city. The area inside the Ring Road is termed a ‘regulated zone’. The meaning of this zone is that only emergency vehicles, vehicles for specific destinations like railway stations and airports, authorised residents, and certain essential service vehicles will be allowed to use this road.

Online delivery has been banned in the New Delhi district, where the G20 delegates will be staying, and also at the venue of the event. This does not include the online medicine delivery service.
