The Supreme Court on Thursday directed that no train or bus fare be charged from migrant workers stranded across the country due to the coronavirus lockdown and that they are provided food and water. The court, which passed interim directions, said all stranded migrant workers should be provided food by concerned states and Union Territories at places to be publicised and notified to them for the period they are waiting for their turn to board a train or a bus.
