Shillong: The Meghalaya government on Friday decided to allow 15 per cent of public transport (local taxis) to operate in Shillong and 30 per cent on the outskirts of East Khasi Hills district from Monday, June 28.
Health minister AL Hek informed that the decision was taken at a review meeting on Friday in line with the High Court order. He further said that taxi operators will, however, have to display their COVID-19 vaccination certificates on their vehicles.
As of now, no buses will be allowed to operate, though.
