As the coronavirus spread severely, the government had announced a lockdown for 21 days. The government had requested the people to stay safe at home and save themselves and their families from the deadly coronavirus. As the entire nation is locked down and except for the work from home people, many people couldn't make money and counting the days to lift the lockdown. In this crisis period, many people have come forward to donate as much as they could to the PM Cares Fund, which will be used to arrange for the medical equipment and treat the covid19 positive people.
BCCI has announced that it has associated with its affiliated state associations and contributed Rs 51 crores to the PM Cares Fund. Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, posted on his Twitter, "India stands united with our PM @narendramodi in these challenging times. @BCCI and it's affiliated State Associations have contributed ₹51 Crores to PM-CARES Fund to help #IndiaFightsCorona. We must all pledge to contribute for this great initiative. @SGanguly99 @ThakurArunS."
