29,000 migrant workers registered: Telangana government before the High Court | Hyderabad News


HYDERABAD: Days after the Supreme Court censored the Center for failing to set up a unified labor portal that would contain all the details of migrant workers working in various parts of the country, the Telangana government informed the High Labor Court migrants working so far in its territory.
“We will upload all of these details to the Centre’s portal once it is ready,” said BS Prasad, General Counsel. He was responding to a question posed by Chief Justice Hima Kohli and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy. The judges resumed hearing on a PIL filed by C Damodar Raja Narasimha, former Deputy Chief Minister of the Combined State of Andhra Pradesh.
Narasimha was seeking the labor protection council for migrant and unorganized state workers to ensure that the social protection schemes and benefits intended for them reach them.
The judges called on the state government to undertake a broad awareness campaign to make migrant workers aware of the existence of such a council and learn how to benefit from it.
The bench gave the state government time until July 31 to react.
Thousands of migrants went through a difficult time when the lockdown was last imposed and again this year due to the impact of the second wave.
Judges ordered state government to launch massive awareness campaign to inform migrant workers of the council’s existence
