Hyderabad Businesses Are Offering Flight and Train
Migrant workers who have returned home due to the lockdown are being recalled by their bosses via airplanes and AC trains. Many builders in Hyderabad are booking plane tickets to bring back workers from Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal to work. For airplane tickets, the cost is Rs 4000-5000 per person and AC train tickets cost Rs 1800-2000.

3,000 workers used to work in Suresh Kumar's company, who is Senior Vice President of the Prestige Group, but due to the lockdown now only 700 workers are left, and work in the factories has stopped. Suresh Kumar said that there is a need to spend to bring the workers back to work and the batch of ten workers will leave from Patna to Bangalore on June 6. In this way, more workers will be brought back.


However, such an attempt to recall the workers has not been done only by the Prestige Group. Many construction companies are also preparing to book flight and train tickets for workers. A contractor says that out of 2500 workers, only 10-15 percent of workers are left. In such a situation, he will have to make an effort to call back his workers. 

According to Tapas Patel, CEO of Om Shree Builders of Hyderabad, his company has booked AC train tickets for 300 workers. Not only this, in addition to the ticket, an advance of ten thousand rupees will also be given to the workers.

The workers being recalled include carpenters, painters, granite workers. In Hyderabad, 40-50 percent of the workers are from Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Apart from this, workers from UP, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Tamil Nadu also come here to work.
