How will the workers be identified
The central government says that the list of the names of the workers who have been sent back to the village by the workers’ special or other way, is already with the government. Based on that list, they will be provided work. The list of laborers who have migrated from a city to their village on foot or by any other means is also with the District Magistrate of the concerned district. However, such people should check their names. From the work in the employment campaign to the payment of wages, all the state government officials will do.
