Lockdown-affected Migrant Workers in Goa

GOA:A report by Tandem Research, based on a survey of 142 lockdown-affected migrant workers in Goa facilitated by Goa Humanitarian Helpline volunteers, has found that there was a major information gap in Goa between the government and the workers, with the latter mostly left unaware of the government relief measures and material they are eligible for.
 

“One common factor across all relief measures was the lack of official information reaching migrant workers. At 91%, an overwhelming majority of workers reported that they had not received any helpful information from Goa government regarding the lockdown, its impact on their rights as workers or access to rights and entitlements, nor had they received communication regarding relief measures from governments that they could access,” states the report by Tandem Research.

The survey data was collected between May 19 to 29, when the migrant workers were deciding on whether to take a Shramik Special train to return home or to stay back in Goa. The largest group of those surveyed came from neighbouring state Karnataka (42%), followed by West Bengal (17%).
