The duration of the fourth lockdown is ending on May 31. The government has not announced the next move till now.

Earlier, a move to have a virtual meeting of the same was stalled by the Rajya Sabha secretariat on the ground that the Standing Committee procedures can’t be held virtually because of secrecy.
