October 27, 20150

As Kuwait has rejected the norm that the employer should bear the recruitment fees of Rs.20,000 per employee, now the onus is on the candidate to bear this expense. The employer would bear the expenses for visa, medical check up and such others. The Central Government has amended the provision that the recruitment agency should not levy any fees from the employees.

As per the amended norm, the agency should not levy more than Rs.20,000 from each candidate. On finding that recruiting agencies are illegally collecting crores of rupees from applicants for overseas jobs, the Central Government had decided in March to route the recruitment from Kerala through Norka Roots, the field agency of the Non-Resident Keralites Affairs Department,

Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants (ODEPC), under the Labour Department of the State Government and the Overseas Manpower Corporation being run by the Tamil Nadu Government.
