Lava will pay around 20 per cent of the salary in advance on Wednesday, almost 12 days ahead of the scheduled date, it said in a statement.

The move is a part of the several measures that the company has taken to ease the trouble of its employees and ensure their safety and well-being.

The company said it will also set a precedent for all its employees to look after their support staff at home during these testing times.

Lava had shut its manufacturing facility in Noida between March 22-March 25 as per the state government’s directive.

As a preventive measure against coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced nationwide 21-day lockdown starting from Tuesday midnight.
