Amid the coronavirus lockdown, the Centre started the Vande Bharat Mission – one of the largest initiatives to bring the stranded Indians back home on a payment basis. It also allowed foreign nationals and valid visa holders to book seats on these outbound flights.
National carrier Air India and its subsidiary Air India Express have been undertaking evacuation flights and they are operating a total of 64 flights and bring back over 14,000 stranded Indians from 12 countries under the mission.
At present, the number of reported coronavirus cases in India rose over 10 percent over the past two days to 85,940, updated by the Ministry of Health.
