ALERT! ECONOMY IN DANGER
This piece is especially for small entrepreneur of India. Due to lock-down, businessmen are facing hassle in running their families. I know, Most of you already got my VIEW POINT but read it, may be you got different picture. So, the three classes; elite class, middle class and poor class, I really do not know about elite but poor people getting all subsides and other relaxations though middle class has been neglected and not even seen in government's radar. Here, I am pitching the voice of small businessmen to authorities in Covid-19 period. Due to all respect to our Government. Yes, we are Businessmen but it does not mean we had money plant growing in. As you have declared complete closure till 17th May, probably, it would be extending further as well. Specifically, Chandigarh and Punjab administration has given some relaxation to few business holders but small-scale businesses are still closed. However, you are urging the business person to show sympathy to needful employees and pay them.
We need to understand what are you really thinking about the OWNERS ? In quarantine, the businesses are on a total standstill, how will the middle class survive??? Have a look on heads below which disturbing us:
SALARIES - ON, 👍
ELECTRICITY BILL - ON,👍
TAXATION DEADLINES - ON,👍
BANK INTEREST - ON👍
EMI'S - ON👍
GST PENALTIES - ON👍
There is no relief for us. we don't mind sitting home for months if these expenses are cut off. The government is not ready to compromise on any front and just expecting the business houses to bear expenses with their shut businesses.
IS THAT REALLY FAIR???
We need a wavier for the above for at-least two months. The same way you gave it to farmers during drought situations. This is the drought time for us too.
DISCLAIMER: This article is only showing the true picture of middle class those are actually suffering.
