Hundreds of Indian employees of Kharafi National held a protest in front of Indian Embassy on Wednesday to bring an end to their grievances.

The workers, who had not been paid their monthly salaries for nearly seven months and have been living under desolate conditions in their camp in Shuaiba Industrial Area, arrived at embassy in three buses to bring an end to their grievances.

The protesting workers met the embassy officials and explained their sufferings. As per the workers, they are living in very deteriorating conditions in the company camp where there is no proper water and food facility. Thousands of workers stranded at the company’s labor camps, have been suffering for weeks at a stretch without water, poor sanitation, intermittent electricity and no proper medical attention.

Later the embassy officials called the company management and held a meeting with the HR officials. The officials agreed to pay all the pending dues of the workers by end of this month. The Company officials held discussion with Ambassador Mr Sunil Jain and Deputy Chief of Mission Mr Subhashish Goldar and agreed to pay the pending dues of these workers by March 1st. The Embassy also informed the company to update the statues of pending dues to the workers who have resigned from the company within a week. The embassy also promised the striking workers that the Embassy officials will visit their camp within a week to followup the issues.

Earlier also the Indian embassy had taken up the issues of nonpayment of salary of Kharafi group employees to the official’s authorities. Despite the repeated promises, the company had not yet taken any action to settle the issues permanently.

Many of the workers have already resigned from job and want to go back to India however their dues are not yet paid by the company.

Dear all employees,
Please see history of KNPC and KOC's Contracting companies. Since,Most of the Contracting company not providing salary, Leave salary, Service money,Food,Accomodation as per Tender document. If you asking all benefits as per Controlled tender documents, Contractor employer saying, We can not give all these benefits due to Our contract approved by KNPV & KOC officials under low-low- quotation. We have only solution that Indian embassy should highlight all these issues to Kuwait Oil minister and Indian Govt. to avoid Low-low- quotation means Human rights violation. Who will solve all these human right violations.

Dear all indians who are working in Al-Khadda International Co. on KOC contracts beware within 3-4 months, you all will face same situation, so better to plan before that. This company is also in same condition as kharafi, once good company with fine reputation but due to some egyptian management or greed this company is in dead situation. KOC blacklisted this company and new owner is unable to solve the problems. so in coming months are very painful for the employees working for this company.

The Kuwait government should take stern action on the defaulting employers who fail to pay up the salaries of employees. This company has wasta in all government sectors including the banks and knows that nothing will happen to them (employers), so they do not care whatever complaints the employees bring against them. The Egyptian mafia in the company's senior management should be blamed for this injustice caused. They have ransacked once upon a time a leading construction firm in the middle-east and causing it to literally wind-up its business. What a pathetic condition. The employers have taken advantage on poor employees salaries to gain their selfish motives.

Why can't the Indian Embassy make a database ('black list') of companies and individuals who abuse the rights of the workers. Publish the the list regularly in the Indian News papers as potential abusers or verify against the visa new recruits bring for verification. Warn the new recruits about the background of the sponsors. From job aspirants a PCC is required, and vice versa, why can't the recruits have some history of their future employers.
