SOP For Guest Workers

Pradeep Jena, ACS Disaster management has asked the District Collectors to follow Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) ensure smooth return of about 60,000 "guest workers" to their respective states.

There are 86,000 migrant workers stranded in Odisha and they have been termed as "guest workers".

In fact several State Governments have shared the contact points of their respective Nodal Officers and all States have appointed IAS and IPS officers as their Nodal Officers.

With the Union Government allowing movement of migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists and students stranded due to the lockdown, the State Government has issued a SOP for sending persons stuck in the state to their home states by road or rail.
 
 In a letter to all District Collectors, Mr.Jena has informed that the State Government has appointed Nodal Officers for different states to ensure that the people from other states reach their native places safely.
 
The SOP said that the prior approval of the recipient state is a must before departure of any train/bus from any district/municipal corporation in Odisha. For road journey by means of bus/ vans, the transit pass will be provided by the authorities here.

The counterpart Collectors/commissioners of municipal corporation/state coordinator in the recipient state should be informed with the details of passengers, destination (district and block) and their mobile numbers.
 
The SOP said that one of the passengers, having a smart phone, may be designated as the group coordinator, whose mobile number may be passed on to the recipient state's collector/municipal commissioner/coordinator.

The destination station/border check point of the recipient state for each train/ bus/ van will be decided by the recipient state government.

It said the returnees should be grouped block- wise/district-wise, while boarding the buses/ vans/ trains, as far as possible, for easier logistics.

As per the MHA guidelines, the passengers have to be screened for health status and only after proper assessment they should be cleared for travel

No person/group of persons should be allowed to travel without appropriate authorization from the state.
