Illegal Immigrants in the Country

 

 

The number of foreign nationals who were found to be overstaying after coming to India on  valid travel documents, State-wise and country-wise, during 2009, 2010 and 2011 are given in the Annexure.  Data for the current year has not been compiled.  There are also reports of foreign nationals having entered into India without valid travel documents.  As entry of such foreign nationals into India is clandestine and surreptitious, it is not possible to have a correct estimate of such illegal immigrants living in different States in the country.

 

            Involvement of such foreign nationals illegally staying in the country in criminal activities cannot be ruled out.  Registration of cases and action thereon comes within the purview of police stations and State Governments/ Union Territory Administrations concerned.  Statistical data of this nature is not centrally maintained.

                        The number of foreign nationals who were deported during 2009, 2010 and 2011, country-wise, are given in the Annexure.  Data for the current year has not been compiled.   Central Government is vested with powers to deport a foreign national under section 3(2)(c) of the Foreigners Act, 1946.  The powers to identify and deport illegally staying foreign nationals have also been delegated to the State Governments/ UT Administrations.  Detection and deportation of such illegal immigrants is a continuous process.   A revised procedure for detection and deportation of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants was communicated to the State Governments/ Union Territory Administrations in November, 2009, which was partially modified in February, 2011.  The procedure includes sending back then and there, the illegal immigrants who are intercepted at the border while entering India unauthorisedly.

 

This was stated by Shri Mullappally Ramachandran, Minister of State in the Ministry of Home Affairs in written reply to a question by Sh. Raghunandan Sharma in the Rajya Sabha today.
