The entire world is facing the largest economic disruption ever due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 Pandemic. As a result, the Industry is facing a stand still in terms of economic development in our country. The impact of the pandemic has been across the sectors; however, the intensity is varied as per the size of the company.
