In this petition, it was requested that in view of the new wave of Kovid, once again the loan moratorium scheme should be implemented. The outbreak of the second wave of Corona continues in the country. Many states have imposed lockdown.
Due to this economic activities have been affected and business has come to a standstill. A large number of people are getting infected and a large part of their earnings is being spent on treatment. In view of this, a demand was made from the central government to give financial relief, which was turned down by the Supreme Court today.
