Govt budgeted free grain for 8cr migrants but only 2.1cr benefited

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 1 July 2020
Only 2.14 crore of migrant workers who returned to their home states picked up the 5 kg free foodgrain (wheat or rice) in May and June each, though the government had estimated nearly eight crore would take the benefit. This was due to less demand in several states while in Goa and Telangana, no foodgrain was distributed under this scheme as there was no demand.
