CHANDIGARH-The Punjab Mandi Board's apni mandi, which began in February last year in Sector 50 and was cancelled within weeks due to the lockdown, will resume on Tuesday. In addition, the mandi at Sector 29, which was previously held on Tuesday, will now be held on Friday.

"Due to tendering, there was a delay in restarting the mandi in Sector 50.''The issue has been settled. A Punjab Mandi Board official said, "There is a high demand for mandis in the southern sectors, and the area available opposite the BSNL Society and PEPSU Society will be used to set it up on Tuesdays."

Apni Mandi Schedule

1.Sunday -   Sector 34

2.Monday -   Sector 43, 45

3.Tuesday -   Sector 50, 56, Dhanas

4.Wednesday -   Sector 15, 40, 46

5.Thursday -   Sector 34, 56, Ram Darbar

6.Friday -   Sector 24, 29, 46

7.Saturday -   Sector 40, 43, 49

Meanwhile, footfall at the apni mandis, which reopened on February 1, has remained low .Following the latest increase in Covid19 instances, the figures have shrunk even more. Even if most of the vendors have returned, footfall hasn't reached half of what it was before the lockdown.Many people are unaware of the days on which the mandis are conducted, and there is some misunderstanding with the Chandigarh Market Committee, which operates on a different schedule, " said Satbir Singh, a mandi supervisor with the Punjab Mandi Board.

The sales are most affected on Sundays, according to auction recorder Harpreet Singh, due to schedule misunderstanding .On Sunday, the Chandigarh Market Committee does not hold a mandi, but the Punjab Mandi Board does in Sector 34.
