THE central government imposed a lock-down / curfew in the entire country from March 25, 2020. The people in Delhi-NCR and in other states/UTs in the country were caught unaware by the sudden announcement, which now appears to have been announced without any planning and preparation. Casual workers, who were dependent upon the daily wages, were staring at the crisis. It was a question of their survival. No work for them meant no wages; impacting their abilities to procure food.
