The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the global population, putting many aspects of people's life in jeopardy. As a result, there has been a pressing need to halt the spread of Coronavirus. As a result, countries have been adopting partial or total lockdowns to limit all forms of socializing. People, on the other hand, are said to dislike the ordinances, according to studies.COVID-19 will have an impact well into 2021 and beyond. However, in order to improve child and family well-being, the pace of support must be maintained.Every sector of the economy has been disproportionately impacted, and even within each sector, there has been a disproportionate loss. Job losses, mental illness, increased domestic violence, and other societal consequences are all severe. Some good benefits can be seen in terms of enhanced air quality, water quality, and wildlife, but the long-term viability of such effects is dependent on post-COVID and people's habits, as well as future environmental regulations. It is in this backdrop that present paper attempts to study and analyze thesocio-economic effects of covid-19 on people of India. The results of the study revealed that during the period of COVID-19 despite the shutdown, it reached the most remote corners of India and left a massive aftermath. Arunachal Pradesh is also known as the "Home of Migrants." People from all across the country travel to Arunachal to create their livelihood (particularly from Assam, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Nepal), and daily wagers were among them. People lost their jobs, businesses shut down, and people from other states were stranded, powerless, and unable to return home as a result of the lockdown.Furthermore, the results revealed that in Kashmir Union Territorymajority of respondents were found to influenced by Covid-19 by having all the effects such as mental issues (where every member of the family including women, old and young person and children were affected), physical issues (to every member of family as women, children, old person, young person), social issues (disconnection with society, friends and relatives etc.) and economic issues (financial crisis to sustain their livelihood). It is learnt from the study due to Covid-19 the hilly areas were also affected so much as it affected mental, physical, social, economic life of majority of person. Socially people were disconnected with their relatives, friends and outside world, they were isolated and locked at their houses. Therefore, they had physical, mental and social problems and children’s physical and mental health was badly influenced by Covid-19.
