Delhi: 1.8 lakh fined ₹9.4 cr for not wearing masks

Aug 27, 2020 09:16 IST

Delhi Police have fined more than 1.8 lakh people for not wearing masks in public, collecting around Rs 9.5 crore in penalties since the drive to check violations from June 14, the Hindustan Times has reported. Addressing a press conference on the slight uptick in Covid cases in the city, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday urged people to continue wearing masks and not mind if authorities were issuing fines because they were doing it for a greater good. The penalty for not wearing a mask in Delhi is a Rs 500 on-the-spot fine.
