As you all know, India is currently undergoing Lockdown 4.0. The novel coronavirus which originally originated in Wuhan, China back in December 2019 is now out breaking rapidly in our country. The Government of India has announced a phased-wise nationwide lockdown in the country to combat this pernicious virus but this prolonged nationwide lockdown has hit hard on the Indian economy. The Government is now trying to unlock India with its Unlock 1.0 plan to bring the economy back on the track. Along with this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is now also focusing more on made in India Products and he has suggested being self-dependent & self-reliant and also initiated a new campaign to promote made in India commodities.
