Assistance to Migrant Labours

The cases of employer-employee disputes are received from time to time with complaints of non-payment/delayed payment or underpayment of salaries, non-renewal of visa and labour card on time, unsatisfactory living conditions including sub-standard food at the camp site, refusal to pay for the medical treatment of the worker, denial of leave and air ticket to the hometown on completion of two years period of contract, physical assault/sexual harassment, etc.

Sponsorship System is the internal matter of the country concerned. Further, whenever a complaint is received, the Indian Mission concerned provides assistance such as mediating between Indian worker and his sponsor for amicable settlement of the matter, helping the Indian worker in the Labour Courts, taking up the matter with local authorities if required and in deserving cases, providing financial assistance from the Indian Community Welfare Fund (ICWF). Also an effort is made to sensitize intending migrants about the implications of the Sponsorship System.

This information was given by the Minister of Overseas Indian Affairs, Shri Vayalar Ravi in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
