An online dashboard “National Migrant Information System (NMIS)” has been developed by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). The dashboard has been developed by NDMA to secure information regarding the movement of migrants and to facilitate the smooth movement of stranded persons across States.
A central repository on migrant workers would be maintained by the dashboard NMIS. It will also support in speedy inter-State communication/co-ordination to facilitate the smooth movement of migrant workers to their native places. It also comprises of additional advantages such as contact tracing, which may be beneficial in the overall COVID-19 response work. With the help of the data integrated in the dashboard, the states will be able to visualize how many people are going out from where and how many are reaching their destination States.
