Punjab CM lifts ban on closure of markets at 9 PM
Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has lifted the ban to close retail outlets and markets after 9 pm in Punjab.

After Punjab CM’s orders shops, shopping malls, bakeries, general shops and tyre retail outlets will continue to be open until late night.
The decision was made by Punjab CM during a meeting with traders.
