India’s Supreme Court says it cannot order government to pay migrant workers

The Supreme Court of India has responded to the litigation by rights activist Harsh Mander and others. According to the SC, it will not direct the Union government to pay the basic minimum wages to the migrant workers during the lockdown imposed due to the coronavirus. This is because the Supreme Court does not want to get involved in the budgetary and financial domain of the Union government.
