The Ministry of Home Affairs today issued an order allowing for the movement of migrant workers, students, pilgrims, tourist, et al, stranded in places outside their home States amid the lockdown imposed due to COVID-19 pandemic.

This order is in continuation of the MHA’s previous orders and also details the modalities for facilitating such a back migration of stranded persons. The States and Union Territories are required to designate nodal authorities and develop a protocol system for receiving and sending such persons from their jurisdiction.

States can consult to each other before allowing inter State movement which can be undertaken by road.

Only the persons found to be asymptomatic after screening will be allowed to move and buses shall be used for ferrying groups of people. These buses would have to be sanitized and social distancing shall be maintained while ferrying such passengers.

The receiving authorities would take necessary steps for the home quarantine or if needed, institutional quarantine of such incoming persons with regular follow ups and health checkups.
