Outside agriculture, the impact of job losses is largely restricted to construction (of the order of 16 million); trade, hotels and restaurants (5 million); manufacturing (13 million); transportation (4 million); and mining (1 million). That’s around 39 million. In the event of India faring much worse, this number can increase to upwards of 60 million
Government have divided each state into GREEN, RED, and ORANGE zones, this will help them segregate the most affected, most vulnerable and most safest place.

Government is planning to restart some of the industries and economic activities in the GREEN ZONE, where pandemic did not hit. Many green zones are likely to be in rural as they are less hit by compared to the cities. Hence restarting the agriculture sector would be a priority. In this the biggest hurdle would be the manpower force, for which government are taking measures so as to make it available.

Funds, cash and refund of GST should be provided to MSMEs to keep the alive. RBI needs to help government with 3 trillion so that it can deal with the situation.
