Where are the records of the migrants? SC asks states & UTs

Aug 01, 2020 16:20 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday noted that states and Union Territories had not yet informed the court about their records of migrant labourers who went back home during the lockdown . On June 9th, after taking suo moto cognizance of the migrant labourer crisis, the apex court had directed the states and UTs to maintain a record of all the migrants who reached their native places with details of their skill, nature, of employment and earlier place of employment along with the mode or manner in which the records are being maintained. The court said that no state or UT has filed any affidavit giving any such details. The apex court has given 3 weeks to the states to submit the said details.
