Note- For Washing Fresh Fruits and Vegetables to be consumed in uncooked form
Rinse in water and then clean using mild concentration washing solution and then keep in warm water for 2 minutes and then rinse well again. This is only for those who are very concerned about safety of food items. I personally prefer not to use any sort of chemicals on the food.
Alternatively for safer option immerse in just boiled water lasting 2 minutes for immediate consumption items, or use vinegar/baking soda in warm water.
But the most important thing is to take care of yourself by maintaining social distancing throughout the shopping right from waiting to enter the shop till exiting the shop to reach your house. And proper hand hygiene. Use face mask. Before entering the house wash hands and feet. And change your clothes as you enter the house preferably go for a shower.

Different organisations have different number of steps. So I have made it simple and clear with 10 steps in total for public use.
For House / Surface Disinfection use Lyzol 20ml in 1 litre water solution or Bleaching powder 30g in 1 litre water. Make sure that it is left in contact for 20 minutes and then wipe it clean with water. Do this atleast 2-3 times per day or more depending on the members in the family and movement in/out of the house.
