The Government of Maharashtra today decided to extend lockdown till April 30, 2020 after meeting with state chief ministers.

This brings the focus on a national strategy to move essentials to nook and corner of the country.

The Retailers Association of India (RAI) has issued a statement stating, “There is enough stock of grains, pulses and other daily essentials for the lockdown period and beyond. There is no need for citizens to believe otherwise and engage in panic buying.”

RAI also said that the association along with its members is working closely with various state governments and with the Centre to resolve supply concerns with regards to essentials as they arise at the earliest.
