The Corona virus pandemic has affected the economy of the whole world. In India also, as lockdown continued for more than two months, many economic activities came to a halt. Many people lost their jobs due to the pandemic. The migrant crisis was a clear reflection of the same. It was one mass exodus wherein we saw migrants and laborers heading back to villages after factories and industries had to shut down. However, now after tackling the virus, the state governments are coming up with various strategies to bring the economy back on track.
“We are launching Rozgaar Bazaar today to bring Delhi’s job seekers and employers on one platform”, said CM Arvind Kejriwal. He further added that an order is being issued for the street hawkers to resume their work in the capital.
It is expected that the government might come up with more such announcements in the upcoming few days. A report by Indian Express states that a 12 member committee headed by Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDC) Vice-Chairman, Jasmine Shah, has finalized these measures. They thus focus on bringing all sorts of business activities back on track in Delhi.
