Migrant workers do not need any permission to leave their dormitories from June 24, 2022, onwards. They were facing these restrictions for the past two years because of the Coronavirus pandemic. There are some campaigners who did not like the decision. They said that some restrictions should have to be followed.
There are almost 300,000 migrant workers living in dormitories. Most of these workers belong to South Asia. The workers live in shared rooms and sleep on bunk beds. The complexes were affected by the pandemic. The right activists told about the poor living conditions of the low-paid workers.
The strict restrictions for many people were lifted up after a short period. But this easiness was not allowed for the migrant workers. They were only allowed to go to work. Later, on a gradual basis, easiness in the restrictions has been provided and the workers were allowed to visit some specific recreation centers. The workers need to have exit passes to visit certain areas.
From June 24 onwards, the workers will not need any passes to leave their dormitories. Authorities have said that the workers will still need permission in order to visit four places on public holidays and Sundays. There will be an availability of 80,000 passes per day.
