Badal to review NRI policies

Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday announced a review of the state government’s major policies concerning the wellbeing of Non Resident Indians.

Addressing a gathering during the third and concluding ‘Sangat Darshan’ (people meeting exercise) exclusively held for NRIs here, the Chief Minister said that these Sangat Darshans have proved to be a boon both for the state government and NRIs as they have enabled the former to have an in-depth understanding of the policies related to the latter. Describing the NRIs as “ambassadors” of Punjab in foreign countries, he said that “they were both an asset as well as pride of the entire Punjabi community so it was the duty of the state government to ensure their welfare”.

“The interactions with NRIs during these three days have enabled me to completely understand the problems faced by them and we will make all out efforts for rectifying the mechanism, wherever needed to address their grievances”, Badal said.

Announcing the review of major policies concerning the NRIs, the Chief Minister said the state government is contemplating to give the powers regarding enquiry of cases against NRIs to the local Senior Superintendent of Police (SSPs).
