Indians in Kuwait and their complaints

August 1, 20150 Comments

indianstitled60,608 complaints made to Indian missions around the world, the majority come from Gulf states. Complaints included breach of contract, non-payment of salaries, harassment, abuse, and other exploitative working conditions.

The most complaints were registered in Saudi Arabia, with 12.5k complaints, followed by Kuwait with 12.1k complaints, Qatar with 9.8k complaints, and the UAE with 6.2k. Proportionally, the highest rate of complaints were made in Kuwait.

The number of Indian migrants working in the Gulf is estimated to be 7 million. India’s migrants do tend to have comparatively better access to redress and complaint mechanisms in part because of the services provided by their embassies and in part because of entrenched social networks.he data provided by embassies provide a somewhat rare qualitative account of the scale of abuse in the GCC, but still the numbers provide only a glimpse into the actual conditions of workers .Gulf governments are often tight-lipped regarding migrant data, publishing limited and often unrepresentative statistics, if anything at all; for instance in the UAE repeatedly claims unbelievably low instances of trafficking,despite it being a transit point for Indonesian domestic workers into other banned Gulf states as well as  the widespread accounts of forced labour on large projects and in private homes.
