Raw material, movement of labour biggest hurdles: CII

Economy


NEW DELHI: Movement of labour and raw material are the biggest hurdles faced by businesses allowed to resume operations amid the lockdown, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has said.

The findings are part of a nationwide survey conducted by CII last week to determine the effectiveness of the exit from lockdown in specific zones and sectors.

“The CII survey indicates that permits for enterprises, passes for workers and supply chain movement are the key hurdles for industry in exit from lockdown,” CII director general Chandrajit Banerjee said in a statement.

The industry body has suggested that in non-containment zones, businesses should be allowed to operate without the requirement of permits as these are coming in way of the industry’s efforts to exit the lockdown. “Workers can be permitted to commute on the basis of a letter issued by the employer organisation, with the facility to travel on their own vehicles,” Banerjee added.
