National Migrant Information System (NMIS)

  • Recently, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has developed an online dashboard called ‘National Migrant Information System (NMIS)’.
  • The online portal (NMIS) would maintain a central repository of migrant workers and help in speedy inter-state communication to facilitate the smooth movement of migrant workers to their native places.
  • The key data pertaining to the persons migrating has been standardized for uploading such as name, age, mobile no., originating and destination district, date of travel etc.
  • States will be able to visualize how many people are going out from where and how many are reaching their destination States.
  • It has additional advantages like contact tracing, which may be useful in overall Covid-19 response work.
  • The mobile numbers of people can be used for contact tracing and movement monitoring during Covid-19.
