The capital of India, New Delhi, has been transformed into a high-security zone as the leaders of the G20 countries arrive for the two-day summit that begins on Saturday. Markets, schools, and public transport have been shut down, and thousands of security personnel have been deployed to ensure the safety and smooth functioning of the summit.

The summit has also caused inconvenience to the residents of New Delhi, who have been asked to stay indoors and avoid unnecessary travel. The central business and government district of New Delhi came to a standstill on Friday with markets shuttered, schools closed and traffic restricted. Shopkeepers have told local newspapers they would lose about 4 billion rupees ($48 million) because of the three-day closure.
