Even as less than 10 days to go for the extended nationwide lockdown to end, the government is still deliberating on the second tranche of a fiscal relief package.

Despite various industry bodies have made appeals to the government for urgent help with capital to keep their shops running, wait for an economic relief package continues.

Sources say the package is still work-in-progress and will be announced only when the Prime Minister and Finance Minister are satisfied with the details. Work on relief package underway, they say.

CNBC-TV18's Timsy Jaipuria reports on where things stand at the moment and how much more time will the government take to roll out a relief package.
