Abstract: The government of India is busy with many development projects, building infrastructures, introducing innovative technologies and expanding roadways that pave the way for future generations. Under these circumstances, the novel Covid-19 pandemic situation outbreak poses many challenges to the largest democratic country. For over 12 months of experiencing the turbulent situation, i.e., from March 2020 to February 2021, India is the second-largest populated country and sixth-largest economy. This novel Covid-19 is new in human history, and hence the knowledge paradigm is exposed to many new twists and turns in the existing knowledge body. The knowledge obtained through holy scripts, wisdom is all in vain. It is the structured knowledge with concrete solutions that lend a helping hand. Based on this case study total interpretive structural modelling (TISM) was applied for model building. Time-series data analysis conducted for empirical analysis, and what could be the exit strategy for the pandemic situation, regional implications and India's implications are discussed.
