ASSOCHAM suggests war-footing steps to deal with Covid-19 virus; seeks moratorium on all debt repayments.

In a joint position paper prepared by the ASSOCHAM and consulting firm, Primus Partners, a strong case has been made for the government to extend an immediate relief of Rs 3,000-5,000 per month, for a few months, to those working in the sectors affected the most by the virus. Street vendors, construction workers, auto drivers and temporary workers can be covered under the scheme which can implemented through the Jan Dhan accounts in the banks.
