As the business activities started in Kashmir after the lockdown imposed during second coronavirus wave was eased in phased manner, KCCI fears that lowering of guard by people and business community may take situation back to square one.

KCCI urged business community and people to wear masks, maintain physical distance, sanitize hands, and ensure vaccination. It also asked them to strictly implement Covid-19 guidelines in their jurisdiction.
KCCI urged people to cooperate with the UT administration in containing the contagion.
The President and General Secretary urged people especially business community to adhere to precautions and prevent lockdown taking situation back to square one. As the successive lockdowns have adversely impacted the livelihood and economy of people in the past, KCCI have had to put strenuous efforts in convincing administration to ease restrictions. However, if the spike in positive cases is relentless, the lockdown is inevitable which will hurt reviving business in Kashmir.
