The Ludhiana police have set up migrant help centres in police stations across the city to provide 24*7 assistance to the labourers.
Earlier on May 15, the police had formed migrant welfare committees at police station level.
Police commissioner Rakesh Kumar Agrawal said police will address the problems of migrant labourers at these centres. Besides informing them about their train booking status, waiting list etc, police will also look into any other problems they face.
He said additional deputy commissioners of police (ADCPs) have been given charge of the centres.
The police commissioner also informed that 13 pick-up points have been set up, from where migrant workers will be ferried to railway stations in buses.
“Migrant welfare committees were formed to take care of ration supply of the labourers and also assist them in returning to their native places. The committees will also address problems being faced by the migrants in factories,” he added.
