In the wake of the #COVID19 lockdown and the large-scale return of #Migrant workers to rural areas, #NREGA played a crucial role. After lockdown restrictions in April 2020, #NREGA person-days expanded substantially before they reduced back to pre-lockdown levels
Are these additional person-days distributed across districts in ways that are commensurate with their population shares of #outmigration and #poverty ?

Received a call from Mr @HardeepSPuri, Hon Min of State for Commerce and Industry, GOI today afternoon. Had a long discussion with him on the steps to Revive the Economy and submitted my inputs for his consideration. (1/n)
Following were my inputs:
1. All announcements made as part of #AtmaNirbharBharat Package were about liquidity infusion & making cash available through Financial Institutions. The focus on demand side is lacking. Govt has to put money in people's hands. (2/n)
2. Govt can categorize sectors into 'minor affected', 'medium affected' & 'severely affected'. Help can be extend to a particular sector either in the form of financial or taxation or others forms based on the category under which a sector falls. (3/n)

On the business front and absolute sales in stores this Qtr, barring Jan/Feb ( Which were normal as per expectation) March so far has seen good growth across segements. March was good due to advanced buying by most of the customers..
We need to worry about rest of March and 1st Qtr of next FY considering the #Corona fear stays till mid of May. How much damage it can cause in terms of supply and damand situation across the country. A well calibareated policies from Govt can change things in a big way.
Major points....

1) Since informal sector contributes 80% of Indias working class. A direct transfer thru #NREGA #Jandhan is need of hour.

2) An income tax waive off for atleast 6 months starting Aprt to to Jun help to stabilize demand and consumption. (2.5 lakh cr deficit)

There is no mechanism to even address or find out what went wrong or how we can fix it. People faced problems in the system are clueless and have nowhere to go.
