Alert: India Coronavirus Update

This morning [March 27], RBI Governor, Shaktikanta Das addressed the media, announcing measures to safeguard the Indian economy from the impact of the pandemic by way of:

  • Expanding liquidity in the system to ensure that financial markets and institutions are able to function normally in the face of COVID-related dislocations;
  • Reinforcing monetary transmission so that bank credit flows on easier terms are sustained to those who have been affected by the pandemic;
  • Easing financial stress caused by COVID-19 disruptions by relaxing repayment pressures and improving access to working capital; and
  • Improving the functioning of markets in view of the high volatility experienced with the onset and spread of the pandemic.

See press release here. Please reach out to Nelson Chaudhuri for further details on the new provisions. 

Additionally, since yesterday, the Ministry of Home Affairs has now included several other categories of essential goods and services, related to agricultural operations, exempted under the Disaster Management Act. See addendum here.

Wishing you all good health!

  1. Wow, amazing weblog format! How lengthy have you been blogging for?
    you make running a blog glance easy. The whole look of your web site is wonderful,
    as neatly as the content!

  2. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or
    guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the
    same topics you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers
    would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel
    free to shoot me an email.

  3. Your style is unique in comparison to other folks I’ve read stuff from.
    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just
    book mark this site.

  4. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  5. I’m curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with?
    I’m having some minor security problems with my latest site and I
    would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any recommendations?

  6. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
    blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Wonderful blog!
