As the dark clouds of COVID-19 are looming over the country, many people are unable to earn a living due to the lockdown. Many small business owners are facing a financial crisis as their businesses have been shut down in the lockdown. As the lockdown has been extended till 3rd May, it is anticipated that the problem may worsen. To resolve the problem to an extent, Bank of Baroda government sector has introduced a special COVID-19 loan. Basically, it is a personal loan, which any retail customer can take advantage of.
