It was across the country to prevent the spread of coronavirus. However, according to sources, the Indian government has not yet finalized the package. According to sources, the issue is under discussion between Prime Minister Modi, Ministry of Finance and the Reserve Bank. According to one source, the size of the incentive package can be up to 2.3 lakh crores. But, it is still in discussion.
Although the Sources claim that the announcement will be made next week. Under this, the money will be directly transferred to the account of 10 crore poor people of the country. Apart from this, the assistance of businesses affected by lockdown can also be announced.
