During the lockdown, State has not been able to ensure food and shelter to many migrant workers. But with some coordinated effort, it’s possible to retain migrants in the city while taking care of their basic needs.

Count-down tickers and CCTV cameras will be used for monitoring Indira canteens, but BBMP Health Department officials will still have a major role in the daily functioning of Indira canteens. Here is how the system will work.
