Seventy percent industries have been found to have defied the government decision to fully pay their workers for the Nepali month of Chaitra (March-April). During a primary survey on the status of distribution of remuneration and operation of industries during the lockdown by the Whole Trade Union Nepal (WHIN), only 30 percent industries were found to have paid the full payment of March-April to their workers. The survey covers 219 industries associated with the General Federation of Nepalese Trade Unions (GFONT), in the five provinces with industrial density.
