Stringent safety norms better than lockdowns: Indian CEOs

Apr 12, 2021 15:19 IST | By Editorji News Desk

India Inc is working with the government to vaccinate their employees in order to avert more lockdown, a survey conducted by the Confederation of Indian Industry showed. The industry body polled 710 CEOs and senior leaders across manufacturing and service sectors.

93% of the respondents feel that a more stringent implementation of safety norms would be a better alternative to the imposition of a partial lockdown. Almost all of these respondents have indicated that their firm is equipped and well prepared for implementation of stricter health and safety protocols.

A major share of the respondents (67%) have indicated that they are working with the government for mass vaccination of eligible workforce. More than half are stocking raw material and nearly a third of the firms are accommodating labor force within the factory to avoid night curfew.
