Migrant Workers Exodus: Whose fault is it Anyway?

Migrant Workers Exodus: Whose fault is it Anyway?

by Anuj Guglani , CEO , World Auto Forum

 

•The Great Migrant Exodus

•How Many Affected : 10 Million or Much More ?

•How many killed : Hundreds. Major causes : Dehydration, Starvation, Fatigue & Road Accidents

•Could it have been prevented ?

The lockdown was announced unannounced on 24 March. Overnight everything was shut. Factories, Offices, Trains, Airports, Ports. Yes thats what Lockdown is! Never seen in India’s history. So no precedence, no reference!

The Quasi Federal Structure of our country could empower the Central Govt to do it. USA took a while to go in lockdown as they are pure federal. There, each state governor needs to ratify. Here it was just one Man’s speech and its done.

So what pushed the migrant workers to leave. The straight answer is No Money, No food, no shelter. They are the first to bear the axe. They have no Permanent employment, No EPF, no nothing. Living for the day, day in and out.

Corona and Zorba the Buddha

Corona and Zorba the Buddha

by Anuj Guglani, CEO, World Auto Forum

 

Corona means different things to different folks round the world.

On one hand, you have a few defiant industrialists who complain India got the strictest and an unwanted lockdown so early on, just to be opened up and eased out with rising cases. On the other, we have Mukesh Ambani raising US$ 7 billion from Global Investors during the same Period. Period!

There are developed nations of the west emulating Anti Covid measures of the Govt of India, of which many we began more than 2 months back.

You have the upper middle & elite class go overboard on cooking, baking, partying, binge netflixing, zooming and you have migrant workers walking 200 km without food and much water and collapsing on the roadside to die, including pregnant women.

There are companies donating to PM Cares fund and the same ones also firing their own employees citing, ‘No Money’. The law of the land allows these companies to donate their CSR Fund but stops them to use the same funds for paying salaries and if done, company directors can face arrest, prosecution and ouster! Ha ha ! Do we really need Kapil Sharma to make us laugh?

IIT Delhi researchers develop test affordable test kits for COVID-19

IIT Delhi researchers develop test affordable test kits for COVID-19

PTI 

New Delhi: Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology here have developed a method to detect COVID-19 which can significantly reduce the test cost making it affordable for large sections. The National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune is in the process of validating this test on clinical samples. The “probe-free detection assay” developed by the researchers at the prestigious institute’s Kusuma School of Biological Sciences has been optimised and tested for sensitivity at the research laboratories of the Institute.

According to the team, considering the scale of the ongoing pandemic, development of indigenous kits is the need of the hour. The central government on Saturday recommended that the maximum charge for each COVID-19 test by private laboratories should not exceed Rs 4,500. All private laboratories which have NABL accreditation for real-time PCR SA for RNA virus will be allowed to conduct COVID-19 tests, according to the guidelines issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for COVID-19 testing in private laboratories, which were notified by the Health Ministry on Saturday night.

Why it’s Grossly Unfair Not to Move BS6 Deadline to 31 May 2020

Why it’s Grossly Unfair Not to Move BS6 Deadline to 31 May 2020

by Anuj Guglani, CEO WAF 

 

Stop Selling BS4 Vehicles on 31 March 2020 even if its Janta Curfew ?

2 Months Extension can save from an ‘Economical Collapse’

There won’t be any extra BS4 vehicles sold, just the vehicles which didn’t move in Feb and March due to Covid19

 

Indian Automotive Industry has seen one of the biggest slowdowns in last 20 years which has been “On” for last 2 years. As most industry pundits comment, it is a ‘Secular Slowdown’. No Vehicle type or Industry fragment has been spared. It is across Dealers, Makers and Suppliers.

A few weeks thereafter, the govt went soft on the deadline, for an industry already overburdened with BS6, New Safety Rules, CCI Norms, Dealer Inventories, NBFC Meltdown, GST, Phew!
