Over 8 lakh Indians can be pressured to leave as Kuwait accepts expat quota bill – Insiderfolks, A proposed Bill to limit the number of foreign employees in the country has been approved by the Legal and Legislative Committee of the Kuwait National Assembly, according with records.
Throughout the region, the Bill will have a big effect on Indian employees. Gulf News announced that, according to the draft bill for the creation of an expatriate quota, the number of Indians would not surpass 15 percent of the nation.
If signed, eight lake Indians will be driven out of Kuwait. The Indian families, at 1,45 million Indians, are the biggest expat population in Kuwait.
Times of India also called for a decrease of 10% of Egyptians as the second-largest expat community in Kuwait.
It may have a big impact, as Kuwait is also a leading source of funds for India, the study says.
The country’s anti-expat sentiment has intensified, as stated, with growing reliance on foreign labor and a fall in oil prices and the pandemic of the Covid-19.
Sheik Sabah Al Khalid Al Sabah, Kuwait’s prime minister last month, said that Kuwait would increase its expat communities from 70 percent to 30 percent of the total population, Golf News reported.
Last week, Kuwaiti lawmaker Mohammed Al-Heweila suggested recruitment of Kuwaiti citizens with Kuwaiti expat workers and diplomatic missions.
TOI announced that in the meantime, the expat quota Bill was moved to the relevant committee with an organized strategy to continue.
India has not released a formal comment. Nevertheless, according to a news article, the Indian embassy closely tracks the changes in accordance with the draft legislation.
