Uttar Pradesh goverment has launched a “Pravasi Raahat Mitra” App to connect migrants with schemes and jobs. The app, developed in coordination with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to keep a watch on the migrants’ health, will also connect them to government schemes and collect their data to help them get a job in accordance with their skills.
With the help of this app, the government will be able to know about the status of Covid-19 screening, bank account number, educational qualification and other details about migrant labourers put up in shelter homes and those who have reached their homes directly. The app will also help in working out schemes for their welfare.
