Abstract

The Social Protection Initiative at Dvara Research has collaborated with the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) to document the accessibility of key banking facilities during the COVID-19 lockdown. We also aim to understand the coping mechanisms deployed by households to manage their cash-flows since the outbreak. Both categories of metrics seek to inform our research on welfare measures being relied upon by governments during the pandemic, a majority of which are direct bank transfers. Key indicators of the study are illustrated below.
