Key Highlights –

The situation as of now – How are we tackling it?

India is doing well to tackle the coronavirus situation as compared to more developed and resourceful nations.

  • One virus has destroyed the world. We had never seen or heard about such a crisis ever before. This is unimaginable for mankind. This was unprecedented. But humanity will not accept defeat from this virus. We have to not only protect ourselves but also move forward.
  • Globally, more than 42 lakh people have been infected by a coronavirus, more than 2.75 lakh people have lost their lives due to the virus. In India too several families have lost their dear ones, I express my condolences to them.
  • Before the outbreak, not a single PPE or N95 masks were made in India, but now we are making at least 2 lakh of PPE and 2 lakh N95 daily.
  • Prime Minister emphasized on the usage of locally manufactured goods and Supply Chain technologies to be made more self-reliant.
  • There is only one solution for all the problem: Self Sufficiency and Self Reliance. Meanwhile, the definition of self-sufficiency is changing day-by-day. The 5 pillars of Self Sufficiency are:
  1. Economy     2. Infrastructure     3. Technology Driven System     4. Demography     5. Demand

Special Economic Coronavirus Package Announcement

  • A special Economic Package amounting to 20 Lakh Crores including the earlier package announced by Finance Ministry and RBI was announced. The economic package consists of 10% of India’s GDP.
  • The main focus of the package would be on MSMEs, Small Industries and Workers, Senior Citizens and others.
  • Details of the package would be announced by the Finance Minister tomorrow.
  • Four important aspects of the package include:

            1. Land      2. Labour      3. Liquidity      4. Laws

Lockdown relaxations

  • After proper evaluation, there can be some leniency for essentials in the regions where there are no new cases for COVID-19.
  • The relaxations granted to certain areas during the lockdown will be conditional. Even if one such case is reported, the leniency will be retrieved.

4th Stage of Lockdown

  • New rules and guidelines for Lockdown 4.0 will be announced before 18th May.
  • Prime Minister also emphasized upon the financial reforms which the government is planning to come up with to make India self-reliant.
  • Prime Minister appealed everyone to adopt locally manufactured goods in our lifestyle.
  • He also said that We need to be more Vocal about Local.
