Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar demands ₹1,000 fine for not wearing masks

Pune: Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar has urged the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) to increase the fine for not wearing masks.

“Many people are still not wearing masks, which is a wrong practice. We will now increase the fine to Rs 1,000. I will have a meeting today in the afternoon and we will decide,” said Pawar who was in the city to inaugurate Covid care centres at Auto Cluster, Chinchwad (216 beds) and in Baner (314 beds).

Pawar was unhappy over people not following the Covid norms of mandatory masks at public places.

Currently, the PMC and PCMC have levied Rs 500 fine from people not wearing masks.

“If people continue to not wear masks then cases will keep on increasing. All doctors, police, and politicians are trying their best to control the virus and currently what we need is support from people. All should wear a mask and maintain social distance, only then can we defeat the virus,” added Pawar.

Earlier, the PCMC levied a Rs 200 fine, but later on, increased it to Rs 500.
