Rehabilitation Package for Migrant Indians from Iraq & Libya

Recently, 6977 persons have been evacuated from Iraq and 3284 persons have been evacuated from Libya due to turmoil in the region. However, there may be other persons who have come back to India on their own & the assessment in this regard is not feasible.

Rehabilitation of returnees rests mainly with the State Governments. The Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA) has advised the State Governments that the existing State/ Central Sector Schemes be used for rehabilitation. Presently, the Ministry does not have any scheme for providing assistance to State Governments for rehabilitation of returnees from abroad.
