As part of the Pravasi Bhartiya Divas (PBD) 2016, the India government will organise a panel discussion on Managing Emigration to ECR countries on 28th June 2016 in New Delhi. Ten members of the Indian Diaspora, including two from Kuwait, will attend the panel discussion along with experts in the subject. 

Shri Dhanpal Panchal, President Rajasthan Darpan Association (RDA) and Shri Suraj Kollabathula, Gen Secretary of Abhaya NRI Foundation, Kuwait, have been selected by the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi as participants from Kuwait for the above event.

As per the revised format of Pravasi Bhartiya Divas to use it in a productive way by the India government, the panel discussions on issues of significance to Indian Diaspora will be held throughout the year and will submit their recommendations to the Government for consideration. The Panel discussion on June 28th will discuss various issues relating to Emigration of Indian workers to Gulf countries.

Indian community in Kuwait, on several time, reported various issues faced by the community at large. The issues of exploitation of female domestic workers and abuse of male domestic workers, high level of irregularities and corruption in the recruitment of Indian nurses for work in Kuwait, long delay in repatriation of distressed Indian nationals to India etc are a few among the major issues which can be debated with experts during the panel discussion.

Several stories were reported by media on Indians falling victim to visa-trading, non-payment or under payment of salaries, exploitation of workers forcing to do jobs other than what promised etc and the panel discussion will be a good platform for the India government to formulate its action plan for helping the Indian people abroad.

Several actions can be taken by the Government of India and the Indian Embassy in Kuwait to make an end to these issues of Indian workers abroad where as some of the steps may require a law or policy by respective State governments in India. 

What action can be taken by the Government of India? What action can be taken by the Embassy of India in Kuwait? What action can be taken by the State Government authorities in India? What are your expectations or action required from the Kuwaiti authorities? use this platform to invite comments and suggestions from our readers on these points, which will be taken as inputs for the Panel Discussion as part of PBD on June 28th.
