The moment India went into lockdown, labour contractors, factories and companies washed their hands off migrant labourers and have stopped paying them wages . The labourers are desperate to reach their native villages. Well, we witness this heart-rending visuals of weary migrants painfully trudging along roads. Unlikely, this is happening because we all failed to support them with food, shelter and conveyance.

There was one such case of a migrant labourer travelling from Jaipur to Bihar with his family. They had no money left to pay rent and got kicked out of the accommodation. The employer didn’t even pay wages for the month of March or for the days he had worked. Nyaykarta, an Advanced Public Grievance Redress Platform stepped up to help this worker for free.
The experts at Nyaykarta took steps to resolve the matter including preliminary investigation and communication with the opposite party. Also, communication with government authority, consultation and finally got the employer to pay the respective wages. This initiative, helped the family with the accommodation as well.
