Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) | June 3, 2020 5:11:39 AM IST
Business of betel leaves resumed at Pan Dariba in Varanasi, after over two months following relaxations in restrictions in the lockdown imposed to contain the spread of coronavirus.

The sellers said they have suffered a huge loss during the lockdown.

"We suffered a lot because we deal with raw material, we had to throw away a large number of leaves. Now that the market has reopened, people are a little relieved," said a seller.

Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued guidelines for the graded re-opening of the COVID-19 lockdown - Unlock 1 - in all areas except the containment zones.

Some economic activities have resumed in Unlock 1, while it may take another one to two months to fully open the city. (ANI)
