The Pravasi Legal Cell has submitted a petition to the Central Government seeking the necessary rehabilitation measures for the returning Pravasi. The main demand of the petition is that the Central Government should take the necessary rehabilitation measures to make a living in their own country as many expatriates are returning to the country every day after Covid and a good percentage of them are losing their jobs.
It is estimated that more than one million people have returned to the country so far. It is expected that the number will increase significantly again when the fifth phase of the Vande Bharat Mission is completed. Many states have taken some relief measures for the expatriates, but the rehabilitation package established under the Central Government is the best course of action, the petition said. The petition, which includes financial assistance to returnees, includes comprehensive requirements for those wishing to start ventures, including a one-stop-shop clearance.
The Pravasi Legal Cell has filed eight public interest petitions in the Supreme Court during the Kovidu period, including seeking a favorable order from the Supreme Court, and has been intervening legally on various issues on behalf of the Pravasi.
Pravasi Legal Cell Kuwait Country Head Babu Francis and General Secretary Biju Stephen said that the Pravasi Legal Cell has decided to approach the Central Government with a letter of recommendation from a maximum of MPs on the issue.
