Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said that not wearing a mask in Mumbai will be considered as an offence under IPC as the situation amid the coronavirus outbreak worsened. All persons moving in public places for whatever reason must wear 3-ply mask or cloth mask compulsorily. Meanwhile, Karnataka government favoured the lifting of lockdown in districts free of Covid-19 after April 14 subject to Centre's nod.
