Evacuation of Indians stranded abroad will begin May 7, according to the country's Ministry of Home Affairs.
All Indian embassies and high commissions are preparing lists of "distressed Indian citizens" and non-scheduled commercial flights will be arranged for them.
"Medical screening of passengers would be done before taking the flight. Only asymptomatic passengers would be allowed to travel. During the journey, all these passengers would have to follow the protocols, such as the Health Protocols, issued by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Civil Aviation," read the statement issued by the ministry.
Two special flights are being operated out of the United Arab Emirates to the southern Indian state of Kerala, according to the Indian consulate in Dubai.
"Priority will be given to workers in distress, elderly people, urgent medical cases, pregnant women as well as to other people who are stranded in difficult situations," the statement said.
Stranded citizens: India banned all international flights in and out of the country in March before initiating a nationwide lockdown, effectively stranding thousands of its citizens overseas.
The special evacuations come as India is attempting to reopen the country. All domestic and international airlines are prohibited from running regular passenger flights until May 17.
A total of 46,433 coronavirus cases, including 1,568 deaths have now been recorded in India, according to the country's health ministry.
