The number of coronavirus cases are increasing at an alarming rate. Amid this, the lockdown has been extended till May 17. The economic cost of the pandemic also began to hit the people with a sharp increase in fuel prices.

Looking to shore up their dwindling resources, more states announced higher taxes on liquor sales, while Punjab pegged its overall revenue loss for the month of April at 88 per cent due to all its tax revenues having dried up and only 1.5 per cent the industry being operational.

 

Industry sources in various parts of the country said they were wary of opening their plants and offices due to concerns over movement of their staff, suppliers, transporters and vendors till the nationwide lockdown, which has been in force since March 25, gets completely lifted.

While announcing the third phase of the lockdown till May 17, the government had given several relaxations for getting industrial and agricultural activities restarted, but only a few companies, especially in the manufacturing sector, have resumed their operations and that too in a limited way mostly.
