The Biocon chief had last attended the office on March 24. A day later, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of coronavirus. All but essential services were shut across the country, effectively putting over a billion people indoor.
But gradually business establishments have been given permission to open their operations but with limited staff.
The entrepreneur, in an interview to news agency PTI, had said that the ongoing lockdown was "very important and absolute need of the hour".
The Biocon chairperson, commenting on the stimulus package announced by the government, had called for bold economic and regulatory reforms to boost the economy.
Ms Shaw is founder and Executive Chairperson of Biocon Limited - Asia's leading Biopharmaceuticals enterprise.
