Govt outlines agenda for welfare of distressed migrant workers abroad

Our Correspondent / NEW DELHI

sushma in PakINDIA’S External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj outlined the four-point agenda of the Government on rescue and repatriation of distressed workers abroad. It includes free repatriation on government cost in case of war or natural calamity and in case of company closure of legally migrated persons.

In case of illegal migration, the emigrant would be brought back only once the State lodges FIR against the illegal agent and cost would be recovered from the agent. If a person goes illegally in the second instance, the cost would be recovered from the person and his passport would be suspended for five years.

Ms Swaraj was addressing a meeting on promoting safe and legal migration overseas with NRI Affairs Ministers of States and Union Territories in New Delhi yesterday.

She exhorted that since these agents function from the States’ jurisdiction and law and order being a State subject, it is incumbent on the State Government to take stringent and punitive action against them which would abate this menace.
