India-Saudi Arabia to sign labour pact
Jan 01, 2014

India will sign a labour cooperation agreement with Saudi Arabia, which will benefit a quarter of the 28 lakh Indians working in the Gulf kingdom.

The pact will lay emphasis on the agreement for domestic workers because it will ensure a standard work contract, with requirements to be followed at the time of selection and immigration. India is looking for minimum labour standards from Saudi Arabia after the application of the Nitaqat , which cleaned up infirmities in the documentation of all expatriates. Over 14 lakh Indians availed themselves of the grace period by putting their papers in order, while 1.41 lakh returned to India.

The Labour Cooperation for Domestic Service Workers Recruitment pact is aimed at streamlining and standardising service conditions of Indian workers in Saudi Arabia, which has 2.8 million plus strong Indian community.
