Air Service For NROs

  

Non Resident Odias (NRO)s stranded in Andaman and Nicobar Islands were airlifted today, thanks to the initiative of the Odisha Government.

On 8 June, 2020 by a special flight of Air Asia, 180 persons are being evacuated from Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Flight landed at Bhubaneswar at 12.50 PM.

Earlier the State Government decided that person stranded in remote parts from where Rail Services are not available and also travelling on road is not possible, will be evacuated by Air.

It is pertinent to mention here that more than 3 lakhs persons have been brought to Odisha by “Shramik Trains” and many have been brought by road.

Due to this initiative more than 600 persons have already been evacuated by Air from Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, Meghalaya, Assam, Himchal Pradesh and erstwhile Jammu & Kashmir.

Dedicated teams of officers of the Odisha Government intensively interacted with the concerned State Governments and also the migrant workers, who are being brought back to the State.

They were helped out to complete the formalities required under the COVID-19 protocols and every arrangement were made to bring those workers to the concerned Airports by picking them up from different islands in the Andamans.

Due to lockdown in the entire country in the backdrop of COVID-19 pandemic situation, Odisha Government has undertaken a Mission to safely bring back all the migrant workers stranded in different parts of the country. 

The Mission will continue till all migrant workers safely return to the State.
