The aim of this paper is to examine the impact on migrant labourers in India during the Covid 19 pandemic and to analyse if adequate measures have been taken to resettle such migrants in the home state. The sudden lockdown of the entire nation in March had caused an unprecedented scenario for the millions of labour migrants. The unregulated labour market had never been a guarantee of security for these migrants; at most it offered a way for daily survival. But with the lockdown, even their means of survival was gone. Post lockdown the government initiated several programmes to help these migrant labourers – both in terms of enabling them to reach their home states as well as to provide them with some form of employment there. This paper tries to look at these governmental policies that were targeted at rehabiliting the migrant labourers.
