Operation Ganga: 19 evacuation flights to bring back 3,736 Indians back home today 

On Thursday, 19 evacuation flights would fly to repatriate 3,726 Indian people stuck in Ukraine back to India.

The news: Because Ukrainian airspace is banned, these aircrafts will operate from Ukraine’s neighbouring nations, to which Indians will be transported by land routes.

What he said: “Under Operation Ganga, 3726 Indians will be flown back to India today on 8 flights from Bucharest, 2 flights from Suceava, 1 flight from Kosice, 5 flights from Budapest, and 3 flights from Rzeszow,” tweeted civil aviation minister, Jyotiraditya Scindia.

What’s going on: The government is increasing flights under Operation Ganga, which was initiated to bring Indian nationals back from the war-torn Ukraine following Russia’s full-scale incursion on February 24.

  • Scindia is currently in Romania with three other Union ministers, Hardeep Singh Puri (Hungary), Kiren Rijiju (Slovakia), and General (retd) VK Singh (Poland), to coordinate evacuation efforts .
  • India has started evacuating its citizens via special aircrafts from Ukraine’s western neighbours, like Romania, Hungary, and Poland, due to the restriction of Ukrainian air space for civilian planes.
  • Since the recommendations were issued, 17,000 Indians have been evacuated from Ukraine.
  • The Indian Air Force (IAF) has also contributed to the evacuation efforts, flying four aircrafts to bring trapped Indians home. The IAF’s four aircrafts were all C-17 military transports.
  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated that the government is working around the clock to bring back the stranded Indians to India, and that no stone will be left unturned to guarantee that every Indian returns home safely.
