The pandemic has led to several people losing employment all across. This has especially impacted those from the lower-income groups who sustained their households on daily wages. With no jobs, people are left without a steady flow of income which can be a dangerous situation to be in, considering how high the prices of commodities are, given the situation.
To mitigate the effects of unemployment and to offer people an opportunity to have some income coming in, the government of Haryana has initiated the Haryana Labour Free sewing Machine scheme 2021.
