As many as 93 million urban informal workers have been affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown, according to an informal Group of Ministers headed by labour minister Thawarchand Gehlot, the Hindustan Times has reported. The 5 worst affected sector, according to the GoM, are manufacturing, construction, trade, tourism and hospitality. Among the GoM's suggestions to the PMO are: a database of the workers and a job card for every migrant worker returning to their village. It has also suggested changes in MNREGA to allow work in a private factory or construction site under the scheme.
