Hyderabad: After staying home for more than 55 days of lockdown, the State capital slowly began to return to normalcy on Tuesday with offices and business activities resuming.

As it was the first day, the staff mainly preferred to clean the premises in the morning in most places before starting their regular work.

Everyone opened their establishments are opened; Motorists drove with any tension, flyovers across the city opened to avoid trouble to the traffic.

Normalcy limped back in the city to a large extent after 55 days of lockdown. All the office work and business activity resumed to normalcy on Tuesday morning.

Anticipations by the police were proved wrong about huge traffic jams on major intersections, as people were coming back onto the roads after a long time. Though there was sudden surge onto the roads, no major traffic jams were witnessed on Tuesday.

The traffic came in slowly and increased by afternoon. The buzz on the city roads could be witnessed in most parts of the city. Most of the flyovers across the city were opened to make sure a hassle-free drive to motorists.

Unisex hair salons, and spa, readymade garments and cloth showrooms, bakeries and other establishments dealing with electrical gadgets, iron and steel, cables, safety gears among other commodities were opened.

Shopkeepers were seen restricting the entry of customers into the premises, by put up a rope on both sides. The transactions were conducted from outside only. “We are adhering to Covid-19 norms issued by the government to carry out our business,” said Telangana State Federation of Textiles Association president Prakash Ammanabolu.

As it was the first day, the staff at stores were seen busy cleaning up their premises in the morning before getting on with regular business. Activities in all commercial localities in Secunderabad, Abids, Gunfoundry, Troop Bazaar, Siddiam Bazaar, Begum Bazaar, Afzalgunj, and surroundings started from 9 am. The areas in the containment zone, are barred.

We could see that most of them  opted their own vehicles to travel, as there was no public transport. A large number of employees came to their workplace with their colleagues who are having vehicles. Auto-rickshaws and cabs got busy as they were allowed to operate with limited passengers.

The areas near Monda Market, Ranigunj, General Bazaar, Bible House, and S D Road Sangeet theatre, Patny Centre, Paradise Circle, Ranigunj, etc. teemed with people and large number of vehicles were seen at these ever-busy junctions.

Shopkeepers closed the shutters by 5 pm and returned to their residence, as night curfew is still in vogue .  The usual hustle-bustle was missing at Secunderabad, Nampally, and Kacheguda railway stations as the regular train services have not yet resumed, except for Shramik special trains to ferry migrant labourers to their native places.

Secunderabad railway station and the neighbourhood which buzz with activity till late night almost wore a deserted look since morning. A few auto-rickshaws were seen plying near the station to drop those working in Secunderabad and Monda Market.

However, parcel services at a few eateries were opened.
