New Delhi: The Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan on Monday while speaking at the 3rd Annual Conference of Protestors said that the government would take strong action against unregistered and illegal agencies sending immigrants abroad.
Such agencies ought to be identified and prosecuted for their illegal activities, said the Minister.
The Minister added that in the last six years several measures were taken to safeguard interests of workers going for overseas employment, however the government has been receiving complaints of cheating, illegal migration and activities relating to misuse of technology.
Therefore, the government would bring in the New Immigration Management Bill soon to establish a comprehensive Emigration Management system and to institute regulatory mechanisms governing overseas employment of Indian nationals, apart from promoting their Welfare.
The bill would open a way for a safer immigration environment, Muraleedharan added.
