Key to improve economy, says DPIIT 

  • The Commerce and Industries Ministry has called for far-reaching measures to be taken to mitigate the effects of the lockdown, urging the Home Ministry to allow relaxations of the restrictions on a number of industry sectors. 
  • Industrial activities must be restarted in at least 15 sectors, including heavy electricals, electronics and telecom equipment, automobiles, steel mills, power looms, defence units, cement, rubber, seeds, agro-chemicals and fertilizers. 
  • To begin with, manufacturing should be restarted in single shifts of 20-25% capacity, following proper social distancing and sanitation norms.  
  • Companies which are allowed to operate should be allowed to insist on workers returning for duty to avail wages.
