This idea is proving a healthy option for people who come out of their homes to purchase groceries and vegetables.
Inspired by photos outside a mall in China, parts of India are drawing circles and squares on the ground to maintain social distancing in markets, with over three feet between each marking for People to stand in them.
Some towns such as Panhala, Ajara and a village called Pulachi Shiroli in Kolhapur district have started implementing the social distancing idea since Tuesday evening.
Locals say the idea is working and people don’t panic while buying vegetables and groceries.
The Indian government has started pushing the idea across other States by sharing photos of such social distancing practices.
