The Mumbai traffic police have banned the movement of heavy vehicles during the peak hours in the city. That is from 7am to 11am and 5pm to 9pm.

He aaded, "From 7am to 11am and 5pm to 9pm, all heavy vehicles except heavy vehicles providing essential service like vegetables, milk, ambulance, police department, fire department, government/ semi-government vehicles and all buses transporting passengers, will have restrictions for running on the roads."
