With every passing day, even as the number of cases is on the rise, citizens are gradually opening up to the new ways of life and are getting to their routines with precautions. Shopping centres, meanwhile, have reported a sizeable footfall. One of the largest chains of premium shopping malls across India, DLF Shopping Malls too has started operations, though partially, and opened its malls to the public, starting 10 June as per the curfew hours set by the Government.

DLF Shopping Malls also offered its mall tenants a 100 per cent waiver on minimum guarantee (MG) rent for the entire lockdown period till 15 June, followed by 75 per cent off till 30 June, and it has also proposed 50 per cent, 24 per cent and 10 per cent waiver on MG rent for July-September 2020, October-December 2020 and January-March 2021 respectively. While this is one positive initiative from DLF Shopping Malls in order to keep the wheels going, Apparel Resources gets candid with Pushpa Bector, Executive Vice President and Head, DLF Shopping Malls, about the precautionary measures at the malls and consumer footfall among other things.

“Now our focus is on consumer safety, their health and providing them the best experience of shopping in the mall. There are norms on the number of people who are entering the mall, so consumers feel safe,” shared Pushpa.
