10,000 Indians Lose Jobs Due To EMigrate System Snags

An organisation of recruiting agencies in Mumbai has claimed that over 10,000 workers in India lost their jobs due to technical glitches in a new online recruitment system. It also alleged that discrepancies in the implementation of the eMigrate system have added to the crisis caused by software glitches.

Employment Promotion Council of Indian Personnel claims to represent the majority of professional Indian recruiting agencies dealing with big employers in GCC countries and having members who are major stakeholders in sending around 75 percent of workforce to the UAE.

The council has alleged that the eMigrate manual from the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs mandates online auto registration of foreign employers valid for a period of five years, whereas Indian missions have reduced the period to one year.

"It also mandates for auto approval of projected demand (for workers) for the period of five years to be raised by foreign employer, without asking for any prior approval of approved quota from local authorities ... (However) Indian missions insist (on) ... showing recruitment approval from local authorities," chairman of the council, Deepak Chhabria, said in an e-mailed statement to Khaleej Times.

"There is no mention of any offline collection of charges to be collected by Indian missions, whereas charges are being collected by Indian missions without issuing any receipt. Only some coupons are handed over by Indian missions at the time of raising demand.

"Employers who have registered ... are called after 15 days to consulate offices with original documents, which were already uploaded by them at the time of registration."

Chhabria said only auto online approval of foreign employers' registration and the demand raised for workers by them can help solve the current technical crisis in the eMigrate system.

The Indian Consulate in Dubai did not respond to questions on these allegations.

As reported by Khaleej Times on Saturday, Indian missions in the UAE have requested that their government suspend the system, after glitches jeopardised the placement of thousands of blue-collar workers to the UAE and other GCC countries.
