    The #IndiaGives initiative commenced on March 24, where all employees were urged to generously donate to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.

    Under a novel initiative called #IndiaGives, Network18 employees have pledged to donate one day’s salary of each staff to support daily-wage earners.
    The initiative commenced on March 24, where all employees were urged to donate generously to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.
    The coronavirus pandemic is affecting the country on a whole, especially those who survive on daily wages as the government has implemented a complete lockdown in the country.
    The company has asked all employees to do their bit and support those who struggle to make ends meet as they will also be practicing social distancing.
    Network18 Group Editor-in-Chief Rahul Joshi, in an open appeal to the people of India, tweeted:
    The organisation will be contributing one day’s basic salary of each employee towards the fund.
    All employees who will be making the contribution from their April salary will be eligible to seek tax relief under section 80G.
    The plan is simple to ensure a quick turnaround.
