Indian Women Working Abroad

   All workers, male as well as female, going for employment to the 17 Emigration Check Required (ECR) countries on ECR passports are required to obtain emigration clearance. Women workers going to Gulf countries are not separately registered. The Government has, however, taken some special measures for protection of women emigrants. Women with ECR passports are not allowed to emigrate for work before 30 years of age. The foreign employers hiring Indian women workers have to deposit a security of 2500 US dollars with the Indian Missions. The Government has stipulated a minimum wage of 300 US dollars per month in case of housemaid. Shelter for run-away maids are operated by the Indian Missions. The Government has stipulated that the employer would provide a pre-paid mobile phone facility to the woman worker as a mandatory contractual obligation.

   This information was given by the Minister of Overseas Indian Affairs, Shri
Vayalar Ravi in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
