Interestingly during the extension of this lockdown easing up of districts or businesses was allowed. It was decided that few of the important sectors like agriculture & related industries can be allowed to operate citing the Covid19 conditions in the said town.
So being in automotive industry had been reading and talking with lot of people regarding the opening and functioning (How, What, When, Who) kind of things and few others. Few pointers which definitely popped up in mind is the kind of responsibility which a business-owner will be taking on ones head.
Firstly is it definitely worth it to go with so much of trouble with authorities, administration & police force firstly to get the Travel passes. We need to do a detailed Cost v/s benefit study before taking this decision.
Secondly, The customer inflow would be very minimal as automobile industry is majorly customer driven. And even after lifting of lockdown the People wont be very forthcoming / eager to buy the cars ASAP.
Thirdly, As per the News / Views & messages on our dearest Whatsapp IF any of the employee or Customer gets infected and it gets traced back to us (Us being the business owner) we will be charged by an FIR, Seizing of Office Premises for who knows how many days & Massive Quarantine of whole staff & Customer database who we interacted with.
Fourthly, Had tried applying for pass for my Agri Business but frankly I got Rejected, I tried asking the reason for rejection & no one was able to give a proper grounds for rejection. Felt like none of the authorities we ready to take responsibility for issuing the passes to masses. Even though they are not wrong on their part as the stakes are very high right now, any misstep and we will have a severe outbreak like other cities, states, countries.
Just not in favour of opening right now as being a responsible citizen is more important then being a responsible Businessman.
Stay Indoors, Stay Safe
