Over five lakh Indians have so far returned home from 137 countries after the government launched the "Vande Bharat" evacuation mission on May 7 in view of the coronavirus pandemic, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Friday. The ministry said, "Considering that the initial target to bring stranded Indians with compelling reasons was only 2 lakh, this is a significant achievement."
