It said the new rules, imposed to prevent the spread of Covid-19, will be in force until July 31. Almost all activities have been allowed outside the containment zones save a few like functioning of schools and colleges and international travel, among others.
National broadcaster Doordarshan will telecast the Prime Minister's address live.
Interestingly, the address comes in the backdrop of the growing India-China border tensions.
On Monday evening, the government banned 59 Chinese apps under national security considerations, a move seen as India's response to China's recent misadventures that resulted in casualties on both sides.
