Are you stranded somewhere in the northeast? And want to come back to Assam, immediately call 74281-59966.

Assam Health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday announced the new helpline number for people stranded in different states in the mainland.

Several thousand students, tourists, patients and workers from Assam are stranded in different states in northeast India states, and are keen to return back home.

People, who are stranded, will have to give a miss call to 74281-59966, and Assam government officials will call you back to arrange the logistics to get you back home.

The Ministry of Home Affairs on Friday had allowed Indian Railways to operate special passenger trains to ferry stranded migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists, students and other persons back to their homes.

Assam government will press into service ASTC buses to get back the stranded people back to Assam.
