India has brought back over five lakh stranded Indians from foreign countries under the Vande Bharat Mission. Under the world’s largest repatriation mission, Vande Bharat, which was initiated by the Central government on 7th of May this year, stranded Indian nationals from 137 countries have been brought back so far. Terming it as a significant achievement, Ministry of External Affairs said that the number of Indians repatriated under the mission is much higher than the initial target of bringing back two lakh nationals. 

Under the Vande Bharat Mission, Kerala with over 94 thousand people, received the largest number of stranded Indians, followed by Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh.

With maximum number of repatriates which is over 57 thousand, UAE tops the chart of the countries from where Indians have returned by the special flights of the Vande Bharat Mission. It is followed by Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and USA. Over 91 thousand Indians returned from Nepal through land border check posts.

Under the massive exercise, 860 Air India flights, 1,256 chartered flights and eight Naval Ships were deployed. Additionally, the numbers will keep on adding as the fourth phase of Vande Bharat Mission has started from today under which more than 500 flights have already been scheduled.
