A spokesperson for the MCD said weekly markets in Pitampura and Saraswati Vihar, which were suspended in January, were allowed to function after one week provided they followed the ban.
However, the five weekly markets were found violating the ban on single-use plastic (SUP). Shukra bazaar or 'Friday market' at Keshavpuram is the latest one to be closed.
