Latest     0000-00-00

NEW DELHI: India’s urban centres will see an extension of the lockdown at least until the end of the month but the government also wants to ensure that the engines of the economy start turning—by making exemptions for agriculture, factories and the transport of goods. The next phase of the lockdown starting April 15 is expected to ensure that harvests and procurement of produce take place without any hindrance, said people with knowledge of the matter. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is said to have suggested a “lock-in” for factories with workers staying onsite and maintaining social distancing. The Centre is contemplating measures to bring migrant workers from camps to their factories, possibly by running special buses or trains.
