Center has decided to bear full expanses of air fare of expatriates in Saudi Arabia wishing to return to the state due to the implementation of a new labour law in that country. In the cabinet meeting that discussed various issues faced by emigrants there, Overseas Indian Affairs minister Vayalar Ravi had informed the State that the Centre would take care of the expenses.

Mr. Chandy said the cabinet came up with a three pronged approach to extend all possible help to the expatriates.
An option was to explore the possibility of retaining Keralites having no valid documents in Saudi Arabia in accordance with the laws there.The second was for the Centre to bear the cost of flight tickets of those staying in Saudi unlawfully, he said. A rehabilitation package for the returnees was also discussed at the meeting, he added.

The government would set up help desks at four district collectorates to cross check and validate details of Keralites seeking the Indian Embassy’s ‘exit pass’ for safe departure from Saudi Arabia due to the implementation of ’Nitaqat’ as part of that country’s move for localisation of jobs in the private sector.
