Tripura will get relief worth Rs 4802 crores out of the huge Rs 20 lakh crore package announced by Centre as relief to distressed people and different sectors of economy for corona relief. This emerged clearly from the briefing given by the chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb to media persons in the state secretariat this evening. However, the chief minister's briefing made it clear that the state's government suppliers, contractors and service providers would benefit from the Centre's decision that all pending bills lying with the state governments would have to be cleared within a period of forty five days  which will give direct benefit to a crucial sector of the economy.

Besides , the Centre's decision to pay up the EPF contribution of employers and employees during the pendency of the corona lockdown will also provide major relief to the organized and unorganized sectors of the economy . The chief minister referred to this in his briefing today.

But  a major relief is expected from the newly coined slogan of the prime minister Narendra Modi which is 'be vocal for local'. The chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb had issued a strong circular early last year directing all departments to give preferential treatment , specially in the matter of price preference etc to local entrepreneurs and investors. But the circular has been and continues to be ignored by the bureaucratic set-up and vested interests in the administration . Now with the announcement by the prime minister the state government's priorities may be taken up altogether differently for implementation , indicated the chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
