The Nagaland government on Friday launched the returnees’ declaration form in the website iamstranded.nagaland.gov.in.
The Nagaland citizens stranded in different parts of the country can register themselves to come back to the state either on their own arrangement by road through e-pass or by arrangements to be made by the state government, Nagaland government spokesman and minister Neiba Kronu said in his briefing.
He said special trains or buses as per the requirement will be arranged to bring back the stranded people after sorting out the data of the applicants.
As of 5 pm on Friday, 33 have applied for e-passes and 7015 requested for government arrangement for transportation, he said.

Kronu said the inter-district movement of stranded persons to their home districts which began on Thursday continued for the second day on Friday.
Altogether 1758 passengers in 85 buses have travelled back to their respective districts from various locations of the state till Friday.
Kronu said the health and family welfare department, in collaboration with the police, is digitally monitoring the people put on quarantine for the whole quarantine period through the nCovid-19 Nagaland visitor’s app.
The monitoring is done from the perspective of both health nCovid 19 symptoms daily self-reporting through the app and police-quarantine enforcement through geo-fencing, he added.
Altogether 4579 people registered under the digital surveillance report so far, out of which 4355, who registered in the app, have already completed quarantine and 220 under quarantine are currently being monitored through the app.
