During COVID-19 pandemic, the government of Uttar Pradesh has launched an online registration facility for migrant workers from Uttar Pradesh who want to return to the state and for those who are in the state and want to return to their native places. The service has been started on Uttar Pradesh Jansunwai portal jansunwai.up.nic.in for the return of stranded migrant workers. It will help in facilitating the movement of migrant workers who wish to return to their native places, and are stranded due to the coronavirus lockdown.
