Commencing hearing on the plight of stranded migrant workers due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the Supreme Court Friday said it intends to give 15 days to the Centre and states for transporting all such labourers to their native places. “What we intend to do is give you and states 15 days time to transport all migrants. States should bring on record how they will provide employment and other kinds of relief to migrants who returned. There should be a registration of migrants,” Justice Ashok Bhushan told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta. The apex court, which had taken suo motu cognizance of the issue, will now pronounce the order on June 9 regarding the transportation, registration and employment of migrant workers. On May 28, the top court had questioned the Centre and states on the plight of stranded migrant workers and directed that no fare be charged from them for their journey home.
