Need of a Policy for Migrant Workers

Migrant workers are backbones of the development of India. They are the charioteer of the economy of both the state-the home and host. Unfortunately, they have been discriminated by the host state even from the start of lockdown and home states also have not done sufficient to rehabilitate them in this world wide pandemic. The central and state government should make the appropriate policy for the migrant workers to tackle such unforeseen situation so that in future such problem could be sorted out without any dent on economy of states and the country. A national register on skilled and unskilled workers should be created in which the education, expertise and experience should be mentioned. Besides this, with the support of state governments, local authorities and trade organisations, in every city, town and industrial areas, such housing societies should be developed where fundamental facilities are available on subsidised prices to such migrant workers.
