Confederation of Indian Industry argues for calibrated exit from the lockdown

Part of: GS Prelims and GS-III – Economy 

In News:

  • The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has highlighted the following in its strategy paper recently:
    • The country’s high performing economic districts should be allowed to function by different rules in the 3rd phase of the lockdown.
    • 100-150 districts with the highest economic value should be allowed to restart industrial activity by implementing strict rules. 
    • These districts are to be identified either through GDP contribution or density of industrial clusters. 
    • Cost of 100% testing and aggressive health protocols is lower than continued shutdown in these areas.
    • Calculated exit from the lockdown in the most crucial economic regions
    • Within these districts, small restricted areas where COVID-19 cases have been identified should be treated as containment zones
    • An area of about 500 metres radius around these areas should be treated as orange zones. 
    • The remaining area of the district should be classified as green zones. 
    • Workers would have to be housed on the premises or within walking distance. 

Important value additions:

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) 

  • It is a non-government, not-for-profit, industry-led and industry-managed organization in India.
  • It works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the development of India, partnering industry, Government, and civil society, through advisory and consultative processes.
