Other than certain exceptions (food manufacturing, export-oriented industries and those connected with the construction sector), all other types of enterprises are shut temporarily due to the provincial lockdowns. There is a fear of mass dismissals, and job disruptions are expected for 21 million workers. While Government has initiated social transfers paying PKR 12,000 to more than 18 million households, employment retention has been ensured only through administrative orders and a refinancing scheme to enterprises (for wage payment).
