The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has also made it compulsory for people to take COVID negative report if wishing to enter a mall in Mumbai.

The civic body of Mumbai has also announced to make the Rapid Antigen Test facility available to take samples for COVID in malls.

Those who do not carry the negative report will have to get the test done at the entrance of the malls.

For the proper enforcement of the rule, a team will also be designated by BMC.

In addition, BMC has announced that Rapid Antigen Test will be conducted randomly at crowded places. It will include railway stations, MSRTC bus depots, hotels, markets, and tourist spots.

The cost for the test will be borne by BMC, except for the tests done at malls.
