CHENNAI - Millions of home-based garment workers in India are at risk of missing out on support to compensate for the loss of their livelihoods during the coronavirus lockdown, according to workers' rights campaigners.

Many factories in India sub-contract part of their production to home workers who are often unregistered and have no right to a minimum wage, social security or healthcare from employers.

India has pledged a US$23 billion package to provide food and cash to millions of its poorest citizens, and it has also asked companies not to fire workers or cut their pay during its COVID-19 lockdown.
