With the outbreak of Coronavirus 2019, it took on a monstrous form and brought down various call factories, industries, services, tourism, and other businesses. Many businesses have not been able to recover from this, but through the use of technology, home delivery, food delivery, sanitizer, mask, internet, internet banking, video conferencing apps, vegetable delivery, etc.; the trade and products created by the necessities and compulsions got a good market. There is not much room to spend the saved money. There is a situation where the market is created only by necessity rather than a luxury.

Overall, only digital platforms have saved connectivity where the demand for technological uses such as buying and selling vegetables, online money transfers, mobile payments, etc. increased. Now in the coming days, a different policy will come in the form of employment. As in developed countries, part-time work, or time-measuring work, might find a large place. If we start working on a contract basis (for a fixed period of time), we will not be able to create the same employment environment as before. As hotels, tourism, various factories, etc. have cut jobs, various organizations have been closed.
