The study was conducted during lockdown in India, and a sample of 136 was collected through snowball sampling with the help of social platforms. The Sleep Condition Indicator (Espie, 2014) was used to collect the data along with demographic details. It was concluded that there existed no significant difference in the sleep quality of males and females during the lockdown (t=1.83; p= 0.069; p>0.05), however significant difference existed in the sleep quality of people aged between 18-24 years and 25- 32 years (t=-2.19; p=0.038; p<0.05) , unmarried and married (t=-2.15; p= 0.03; p<0.05), and employed and unemployed (t= 3.03; p= 0.003; p<0.01) .People with poor sleep quality were suggested to practice progressive muscle relaxation, sleep hygiene, give and take emotional support from partner and listen to soothing music at bedtime.
