In a major relief to thousands of migrant workers stuck in various states due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown, the Union government on Wednesday directed states and Union territories to facilitate inter-state movement of the stranded people, including migrant labourers.

As per the guidelines, all persons travelling from one state to another should be screened both at the source and the destination. He or she should also be kept in home or institutional quarantine on arrival, said a statement issued by the home ministry. “All states/UTs should designate nodal authorities and develop stranded protocols for receiving and sending such stranded persons. The nodal authorities shall also register the stranded persons within their states or UTs,” the statement said.

It said if a group of stranded persons wish to move from one state to another, the sending and receiving states should consult each other and mutually agree to the movement by road.
