If these People are not properly quarantined with proper safety procedures, it will turn into a pandemic in India due to the high population density.

Please stop misusing IAF Globemaster for such nonsense trips. If the plane gets infected it will spread in military.

Kudos to Govt. However, please make sure that people are quarantined for longer period. There are reports from China that 14% of people recovered are re-infected. Informations about virus are still coming out. Please don't take any chance.

These people should be tested and quarantined for a safe period as the coronavirus has proven to be a resilient virus that sometimes takes few days to emerge. Better to be safe than sorry. Provide good care during quarantine.
