Germany is getting popular for higher studies in whole world due to it's quality education and low tuition fees. Apart from that students are allowed to work 120 half and 240 full days in a year to finance their studies. There is an arrangements known as block account where every international students need to deposit funds needed to deposit to ensure the survival and costs of living in Germany.
As the corona crisis is getting over the world, and Germany at the moment. Many cafes, Restaurant, Theaters and shops are fully or partially closed due to this lock down situation. There are not enough jobs this students can do at the moment. Many students are depended on this part time job to finance their study. More than half of the students are depended on this income. This situation creates a major financial problems as most of them are into temporary jobs and they do not get any financial security during such crisis. There are demands from the local university student political groups to look into this matter and provide some sort of emergency funds to the needy one in crisis like this. The students can not even fly to their parents due to lock down situation in almost many countries. I am being a former student from India, I can speak of many students who are facing such issues and can not ask for funds from their parents and now here they can not make up for the fund needed to pay their rent and other needed expenses. This is the story of the students from countries like eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Students with weak financial situation are under stress and worried about their survivals.
Emergency funds from DAAD and Studentenwerk
Thankfully German authorities have planned emergency funds for the students in financial crisis. This information can be seen from the university and Studentenwerk websites. Normally students can apply it for 2-3 times maximum, and which is the emergency fund which does not needed to be returned but it's only in case of real emergency. There are information about the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) about helping international students in the crisis. I have attached the link below about the emergency funds from my university HAW Hamburg and I am pretty sure about such funds and arrangements in each German universities. In case of any emergency financial situation one can always contact the international office and seek the needed the help.

As of now most universities have postponed their sommer semester and some has started their semester with online classes only. If any Indian students are facing trouble at the moment they can contact the above methods common to the all international students. Apart from that there are Indian associations in most of the cities and universities which are kept in constant contact with Indian embassy. They can surely give you ear or try to help you out in appropriate manner.
