"With the lockdown being extended, it''s only going to get harder on everyone, especially those workers and technicians who rely on daily wages for their livelihood. They are in a situation in which they don''t have clarity on where their next meal is coming from...and that can be scary.... very scary," it added.

The company said that it is the moral responsibility of every individual to help those affected by the lockdown.

"They are in this situation through no fault of their own, and we believe it''s our moral responsibility to help them as much as we possibly can that is why the entire Dharma family has come together to extend our support to the various causes initiated by the government and host of NGOs to help those affected by this lockdown.

"There is still a lot to be done, and this is our contribution to the cause. Let us all unite and fight COVID together," the statement added.
