Forum writes to Home dept on firms cheating job-seekers abroad

The Karnataka NRI Forum has written to the state Home department seeking action against 13 illegal agents/agencies that have been found to be hoodwinking people seeking jobs in foreign land, especially the Gulf nations.

Arathi Krishna, deputy chairperson of the Forum, on Tuesday told reporters that earlier this month, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had sought Karnataka's explanation for not initiating action against such companies, despite reminders from the Ministry.

Following this, she had written to the Home department, she said.

As many as 13 people have complained to the Ministry about these agencies operating in Karnataka, especially in Bengaluru. She said that Karnataka had urged the MEA to set up the Protector of Immigrants and the Videshi Bhavan offices in Karnataka.
