The Meghalaya government on Thursday said that it will permit the movement of citizens from the State who are stranded in other North Eastern States, into the state with effect from May 5, an official said on Thursday.

“Those who intend to return to the State may fill up the online form at  http://meghalayaonline.gov.in/covid on or before May 4, 2020,” a Chief Minister’s Officer Communiqué stated.

“Those who do not have internet access may call 81320-11037/ 84330-

38716 / 97115-44148/ 73385-50288 between 9 am to 8 pm on any day before April 4, 2020 to register,” the statement read, adding that registration as mentioned above is mandatory.

The Communiqué also stated that for citizens stranded in the other states outside Northeast India, the registration process will be announced as soon as confirmation is received from the Government of India about resumption or arrangement of air and rail travel services. “Applications of 10,267 persons who have registered for the CM’s Special Grant for stranded people so far have been screened,” the statement stated adding that, “Details of 7,891 verified applicants have been sent to bank for disbursement and the banks are processing the same, while the remaining application too will be sent to the banks.”

Earlier, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong informed that the State government was preparing the modalities for bringing back residents of the State who are stranded in different parts of the country due to the lockdown.

“The government would initially focus on bringing back those stranded in neighbouring States,” he told journalists.

Tynsong said it was not possible for the State at the moment to arrange for buses to bring back its citizens who are stranded in far off places like New Delhi and other areas.

He said that those citizens must wait for the resumption of railway and air services.
