In the first phase of Unlock, the government has permitted the function of hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality services from June 8 onwards. Moreover, this decision has made all hotel stocks to increase at a high rate.

Therefore, the first phase called ‘Unlock-1’ will begin from June 8 with operations such as the working of shopping malls, restaurants, and religious places taking effect. However, this is not the same for the highly-affected zones including the city of Mumbai.
