The city police commissioner has issued orders to close the All India Industrial Exhibition (Numaish) at the Nampally Exhibition Grounds. Representatives of the Exhibition 'Society announced through mics on the ground that the exhibition was being closed in accordance with these orders. That means there is no Numaish for two years on a trot.

Meanwhile, city police commissioner CV Anand issued notices to Exhibition Society Vice-president Dr. Prabha Shankar and Secretary Aditya Marg to immediately stop the exhibition as a precautionary measure in the wake of the Omicron cases surge. It was advertised through mics that the exhibition would be suspended as per these orders.
