THE INDIAN CONUNDRUM

Social Conundrum

The repercussions of withdrawing a national lock-down have many effects on social and health spheres of the nation.

Financial Conundrum

Indian economy is facing a disaster. The longer the lock-down continues,the longer the economy gets hit hard, very hard. the stimulus package by the Indian government is a paltry 0.1% of the national gdp aimed at provideing relief to MSMES.(Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises).

Result of the confusion

unclear future results in loss in stock markets, inflation, unemployment, rent control abuse, reduced foreign direct investments,….. and the list goes on. The unemployment hit to the migrant labor workers have resulted in a humanitarian crisis in the country. In the absence of a social security mechanism it the country, the workers are largely dependent on their personal savings and the free food provided by different state governments their own respective states.
