Union Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur on Tuesday said work from home is here to stay and the media and entertainment industry is likely to emerge as one of the biggest employment generators in post-Covid India. “The current pandemic and lockdown situation has shown us that work from home is here to stay. We have to look for opportunities in this crisis. This is the right time for India to grow,” he said, adding that digital platforms can help us grow faster. “We see huge space of employment and growth in the media and entertainment space,”


To achieve this, there is need for concentrated efforts required by the government, academia and industry bodies.” According the report, the key consumption drivers for long term growth are driven by rise in growing rural demand and media consumption; capturing more time of digitally connected consumers; and strategically supplying to segmented audiences.
