I read your posting on topic of ‘Migrant Labour’ in Cite HR. You have done lot of research on topic and provided the statistics to understand is a work of praise worthy:

In my consideration, what was happened was bad. But was the essential for all of us i.e. specially for the Government both at Centre and State to understand the basics.

Why this has happened?

Who are responsible for the tragedy of the workmen in migration?

What role Government Labour Department played, is a subject of discussion?

What role did the employer play for the workmen who has remained the source of income generation?

The Central Government requested all the employers to look after their workmen either from home land form other states. Has anyone paid any attention to the appeal, 95% employer in organised sector ignored the call of the Govt and stand in queue before the court, High Court & Supreme Court to defy the MHA guidelines to make payment during lock down.

It is better not to speak of the labourers working in un-organised sector, the count is 60% of the total strength. Neither any law nor rules are existing for them. What Acts, laws & rules will do, if it is broken. All are crying and beating their chest but hardly any tears in their eyes except a mock drill.

There is a flaw in the definition of Interstate migrant worker in the ISMW Act 1979,which excludes 99% of migrant workers.
In the Building Workers Cess Fund with different states 31K Cr rupees are un utilised. This was enough to feed them and to transport them back to their own states.
Apart from the two above Acts we have Unorganised workers social security Act 2008 which was not implemented. If so we would have got correct data on them.Now govts have only estimates.
