Maharashtra Government has released 67.19 crore rupees for funding the travel cost of migrant labourers stranded across the state. A statement from the Chief Minister’s Office has informed that the money has been transferred to district collectors after considering the list of migrants who had registered themselves for a journey back home.

While an amount of 54.75 crore was deposited earlier, an additional 12.44 crore rupees has been deposited into the accounts of Mumbai, Ahmednagar, Satara, Sangli, Solapur and Kolhapur district collectors. Special trains are being run by the central government to ferry the migrant workers to their home states from different parts of the country, where they are stuck due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown.

Maharashtra Government had yesterday said that over five lakh migrants have left the state via 385 trains.

Meanwhile, incidents of migrants crowding railway stations continued for third day in a row. A large number of migrants gathered in Palghar district after it was announced that three Shramik trains would leave from UP today. As distribution of tokens to bonafide people became difficult, creating a chaos, the administration decided to cancel two trains and asked the crowds to disperse.
