Bangaluru:7th January: Compared to previous Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, this year’s PBD will be outcome-oriented and the outcome is aimed at empowering the Indian diaspora, said Mr Dnyaneshwar Mulay, Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs, here on Saturday.

Briefing the media on the first day of PBD, he said, “The whole approach of this year’s PBD is to listen to the queries of the Indian diaspora and address them.”
Pointing out that they won’t follow the wait-and-watch approach in addressing the issues of the diaspora, he said, “Once we listen to their grievances, the ministry of external affairs will take the necessary measures to address them.”

“This is the biggest turnout for the PBD since its inception in 2003. More than the social engagement, economic engagement of the diaspora is needed,” he said.
He sought the support of state governments in battling issues related to Indians abroad, who works as drivers, domestic workers, hotel workers etc.

“State governments should take steps to bust rackets that are involved in human trafficking. Those involved in these rackets send workers abroad blindly and make them targets of ill-treatment and humiliation. To prevent problems for such lower rung workers, the ministry has taken measures like pre-departure orientation and sending them as e-emigrants, so that employers abroad fulfill all their duties towards the labourers,” he said.

 

On extension of time sought for overseas Indians to exchange demonetised `500 and Rs 1,000 notes, he said, “It has to be formally taken up by the RBI and finance ministry.”
