As the number of coronavirus cases continue to climb in the country, dine-in services for restaurants in Maharashtra have resumed from October 5.

Right now, restaurants are being allowed to operate with 50 per cent capacity with safety measures in place.

The announcement was made by the state government as part of Maharashtra Unlock 5 plan.
