The industry giants have another big problem to deal with as migrant workers in factories have gone back to their homes. Indian medium and small business which accounts for the bulk of manufacturing and employment is mainly dependent on the migrant workforce, flag experts.
“So far, there has only been a partial labour’s exodus, and I sense that as and when migrant labourers are facilitated to return to their hometowns, they would do so as a priority, least for a few days or weeks, before rejoining any work in cities,” said Rajeev Singh, Partner,
Singh added that there will be a spike in labour movement across states, after May 4.
“The pattern we noticed in Wuhan province was that in the first few weeks absenteeism was as high as 60-70%. Gradually, that absenteeism went down. While building a roadmap beyond May 3, manufacturing plants in India, companies need to take this fact into account too,” says Singh.
