              "Min wage for workers seeking jobs abroad not yet fixed"



     Abu Dhabi, Jan 23: India is yet to fix a "realistic" minimum wage for its domestic workers seeking jobs abroad, Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi has said. Ravi said the (wage) figure should be "realistic" and needs to reflect the conditions in each of the countries where the workers are employed.

 

     Ravi had attended the 'Ministerial Consultations on Overseas Employment and Contractual Labour for Countries of Origin in Asia' in Abu Dhabi yesterday where he stated the above.

 

     Though the salary-level needs to be linked with the cost of living prevalent in each of the countries concerned, a monthly salary of USD 300 is a figure most Indian missions are comfortable with.

 

     Ravi said the Indian cabinet has not fixed the minimum wage for domestic workers seeking jobs abroad.

Addressing a press conference in Abu Dhabi yesterday, Ravi said the UAE has taken major steps in ensuring the welfare of expatriate workers by introducing salary payment through banks and strict inspections.

 

     "Now, all the employers should contact the Indian missions in the respective countries when they hire domestic workers. Thus, the Indian missions will have records on the whereabouts of these workers," he said.

 

     India had proposed the re-examination the sponsorship policy for foreign workers during a labour conference held in Abu Dhabi.
