Reliance Industries on March 23 said it will continue to pay contract and temporary workers, even if work has halted due to this novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, outbreak. "For those earning below Rs 30,000 per month, salaries will be paid twice a month to protect their cashflow and mitigate any overwhelming financial burden," it said in a statement.

The company announced a number of measures, including ramping up production capacity to 1 lakh face masks per day, free fuel to emergency vehicles carrying COVID-19 patients and free meals in various cities to support the livelihood of those impacted by the outbreak.

In a statement, RIL said its CSR arm - Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital – in collaboration with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has set up a dedicated 100-bed centre at Seven Hills Hospital, Mumbai, for patients who test positive for COVID-19. It has also built a fully-equipped isolation facility in Lodhivali, Maharashtra, and handed it over to the district authorities, as an initiative to battle against the outbreak.
