Cabinet Secretary, Rajiv Gauba, said that there are no plans to extend the lockdown period beyond the current 21-day announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 24 to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

He expressed surprise on reports that the lockdown could be extended.
"I’m surprised to see such reports, there is no such plan of extending the lockdown," Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba said on reports that the lockdown could be extended.

The 21-day lockdown came into effect on the intervening night of March 24-25.
The government has asked all states and UTs to strictly enforce the lockdown in view of the huge exodus of migrant workers. It issued a set of measures to be implemented by local authorities to enforce the lockdown and to make sure that the migrant workers do not face any difficulties during the period of the lockdown.

The government has also constituted 11 empowered groups for planning and ensuring implementation of Covid-19 response activities. The 11 teams will comprise 80 senior civil servants. Total number of cases in India have crossed the 1,100 mark.
