Opening shopping malls can reboot the Indian economy, promote safe shopping

Kolkata, May 12 (UNI) Regarded through the ages as an economy where agriculture has served as its backbone, India is today compelled to reconcile with its nerve centre – the retail sector and the second largest employer in the country.
Employing over 46 million Indians, the paralysis of the sector on account of the Covid-19 pandemic in turn threatens the 250 million livelihoods that it sustains.
According to the Shopping Centres Association of India (SCAI), " The shopping centre industry provides livelihood to over 12,000,000 citizens, directly and indirectly. Not only is it vital to organised retail in driving key sub-sectors like Entertainment, Fashion, Electronics, FMCG, Services, Cinema and Food & Beverages, it is far better equipped to ensure that public health-related measures are prioritised and uniformly implemented.
