The online poll was conducted across Network18's platforms including CNBC-TV18, News18, Moneycontrol and Firstpost between May 21 and May 28 in languages including English, Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Punjabi, Assamese, Odia and Ordu.
About 57 percent of the people who responded to the poll said they would not take a flight or train this year, if they can help it, while 15 percent said they would wait for at least three months to travel by a flight or train. Up to 13 percent said they would wait for a month while the remaining said they would take a flight or train as soon as the services resumed.
Here are the highlights from the findings of the poll:
  • Most respondents do not see themselves taking a flight/train this year. Reluctance highest in Marathi (79%) and lowest in Malayalam (36%).
  • People are largely unwilling to go to movie theatres this year. Most Gujaratis, Assamese-people and Odias along with a large number of Telugu-people do not want to go to a theatre ever again.
  • Most people want to keep on cooking their own food. About 49 percent of Gujaratis want to eat out/order in.
  • Most do not want to shake hands anymore. Punjabis are largely uncertain (92 percent).
  • Doctors, nurses and health workers are the COVID-19 warriors of choice. Sanitary workers come in second, followed by police.
  • Most have deferred their holiday plans. Those who haven't include a large number of Gujaratis, Tamilians and Malayalis.
  • Partying is not on the agenda for most.
  • Most respondents across languages believe that they are already kind and the pandemic hasn't changed that.
  • Majority will contribute more towards housework even when the lockdown is over. Kannadigas and Odias are the most willing.
  • Willingness to use public transport is highest among Tamilians, Urdu-speakers and Bengalis.
