In view of the All India Industrial Exhibition, the Hyderabad police requested to take alternate routes and avail the public transport System like RTC Buses and Metro Rail Services to avoid traffic congestion and parking problems. Police have asked people to co-operate with cops on duty.

The exhibition began on January 1 after following all SOPs. A vaccination station was also set up under the purview of the district health officers. Additionally, in a bid to ensure that social distancing is followed, 200 stalls were reportedly reduced at Numaish this year. For the first time, the popular event began on a low-key note.

Around 1,600 stalls were set up by various traders from different parts of the country. From dry fruits and nuts to clothing from various states and cities, including Chennai and Kashmir, were already set up at Numaish. Due to rising Omicron cases, Hyderabad police had directed Aditya Margam, secretary of the Exhibition Society, to close the 46-day exhibition immediately. On January 10, all cultural activities at the 81st edition of the All India Industrial Exhibition (AIIE), were suspended.

In the past, the Industrial Exhibition could not take place only on two occasions. During 1947-48, Numaish could not be organized following events leading to the merger of the Hyderabad state with the Indian Union. Numaish was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Exhibition Society suffered a loss of nearly Rs. 12 crore for not conducting the event last year.
