The Labour Minister suggested to the Labour Department that like the existing 8 cities, “Migration Assistance Centres” should be established in Leh-Ladakh also, because a large number of migrant laborers from Jharkhand go there for employment. He also interacted with the migrant girls living in the “Migration Assistance Centre” through an online medium.

Labour Department Secretary Mukesh Kumar said that Migration Service Centres have been established for youth and workers going out of the state for employment. This initiative of the Labour Department in the form of Migration Assistance Centres is an attempt to provide an environment like home and state to our youth in other states also.
