Bengaluru was one of India’s first cities to report a rapid spike in cases of Coronavirus, which led to a prompt lockdown.
This has left over 13,000 migrant workers and their families in the city with no supply of work or food.
Nishant K, Joint Income Tax Commissioner, Bengaluru, was one of the first responders who helped these helpless families.
He began distributing hot meals to some 1,800 migrant workers near Bommasandra, along with around 20 IRS officers from his department.
His team quickly upscaled their efforts after the national lockout began, currently catering for 13,050 people daily.
