Kerala to set up NRI commission for non-resident Keralites

By Newsgram Staff Writer

For the ease of NRIs, Kerala government will set up an NRI commission to deal with the issues relating to visa cheating and criminal offences against the life and property of non-resident Keralites (NRK), Kerala Governor P.Sathasivam’s said during an address to the state assembly on Friday.

“Visa cheating and criminal offences against the life and property of non-resident Keralites (NRK) has become a very serious problem today. My government has decided to establish a NRI Commission to deal with such cases exclusively and effectively,” said Sathasivam.

Sathasivam pointed out that Kerala is hugely indebted to the NRK’s for their contribution to Kerala. “The total remittance of NRK’s to Kerala is more than Rs.90,000 crores, over and above the NRK deposits of about Rs.97,400 crores in the various financial institutions as on 30th September last year,” he added.

The NRI Commission would have the status of a quasi-judicial body and the diaspora could engage lawyers, who would be appearing before the Commission on their behalf.
