Over 13,000 Complaints Received From Indians Working Abroad

Thursday, November 28, 2019

Over 13,000 complaints were received from Indians employed abroad over non-payment of wages and cheating, the External Affairs Ministry said on Wednesday.

Out of 102 countries, the highest number of complaints -- 3,844 -- were received from Indians working in Saudi Arabia, it said.

Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan shared the data in a written response to a query in Lok Sabha.

According to the data, 13,665 complaints were received in 2019 (till October 31), he said.

As many as 17,379 complaints were received in 2018, 18,482 in 2017 and 15,826 in 2016, he added.

"On receipt of complaints from or on behalf of the emigrants, the same are addressed urgently by the Indian Missions by suitably taking up the issues with the concerned local government authorities for resolution," Muraleedharan said.

"Complaints pertaining to employment-related issues are also taken up by the Indian Missions directly with the concerned foreign employer, wherever possible, for prompt redressal," he said.

India is sending incompetent people to work in its embassies. They should 1st check what action these people in the embassies have taken on complaints or else fire them if found guilty. We has 1 billion people, cant we find some decent guys to work in embassy?

Unfortunately, our Gvt shows no interest in resolving it. As articles states only record of complaints received from indians...

Hope action will be initiated soon..

And 0 steps taken to solve those complaints for sure other wise those complaints may have been less in numbers. And to be honest with indian embassy’s are worst in co operating and helping Indians in gulf countries as I have experienced. In comparison of countries like Philippines n other. And we lost hope they will change for better in future and no one is going to listen to us in this issue.
