Tamil Nadu government launches a new website for Non Residential Tamilians to return back to India – nonresidenttamil.org

Commissionerate of Rehabilitation and Welfare of Non Resident Tamils

A new portal for the registration of Non Resident Tamils living abroad and evincing interest to return to Tamil Nadu after the air traffic is restored is started by Tamil Nadu government. Tamil Nadu government has made special arrangements to bring home the Tamils ​​who have been trapped abroad due to coronavirus virus.

The prevalence of coronavirus across India is increasing day by day. As a result, states have declared curfews and closed borders. Moreover, local bus, rail and air traffic has been canceled.

As a result, people who work and work abroad and abroad are often unable to move to their hometowns. That way, Tamil Nadu people in various states are trapped. The central government yesterday allowed the repatriation of overseas workers to their home states for more than a month. To this end, the Union Railway Ministry is said to have developed a plan to run 400 special trains per day.

In the meantime, a website has been created on behalf of the Government of Tamil Nadu to bring home the people who are stranded in foreign countries. Tamils ​​who wish to return home from overseas are advised to register on nonresidenttamil.org.
