These restrictions will be enforced from September 8 to 10, but exceptions will be made for essential services, notably postal and medical deliveries.

Yadav emphasized that the previously issued traffic advisory from August 25 remains unchanged. During the summit, the city will allow the delivery of essential medical items, including lab reports and sample collections, with ambulance services remaining operational.

Notably, commercial activities in the New Delhi district will be prohibited during the G20 Summit. However, regular metro services will continue, with only the Supreme Court metro station temporarily closing from September 8 to 10. Yadav also mentioned possible brief closures of metro station gates due to VIP movements and security concerns.

To facilitate the movement of delegates and participants, a graded traffic management plan will be initiated starting from the night of September 7. Residents of New Delhi district heading to the airport or railway stations will undergo stringent security checks, including presenting valid identification and boarding passes.

A recent order for the shutdown of shops, offices, and bus depots in the Central district, issued by the Station House Officer of Daryaganj police station on September 3, was subsequently withdrawn, as reported by The Hindu.

Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj assured the safety of attendees, with ambulances accompanying summit convoys and strategically positioned throughout the city. Additionally, 80 teams of medical professionals will be deployed, along with five government hospitals and three private medical facilities in high alert mode, to respond to potential emergencies during the summit.
