Some shops remained open even after 11 am- the stipulated time decided by the administration to shut the shops.
The administration on Thursday had announced some relaxation to open shops from 7 am to 11 am, in adherence to the even-odd formula.
In Zirakpur, many shops were open till 1 pm. The shopkeepers said that they were not aware about the timings and the workings of the odd-even formula for opening the shops.
