Campaign launched for safety of women marrying overseas Indians
The government has launched an awareness campaign for women set to marry overseas Indians, and published a pamphlet for them in various languages on safeguards they could take, an official release said Thursday.
The pamphlet, "Marriages to Overseas Indians" has been published in English, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Punjabi.
A booklet in English has also been published with information on safeguards available to women deserted by non-resident Indian spouses, legal remedies for them, the authorities they can approach for redressal, and non-governmental organisations which provide assistance, the release said.
The government has earlier taken several steps to safeguard the interest of Indian women from fraudulent marriages with overseas Indians.
The steps taken in this direction include providing legal and financial assistance to women who are deserted or divorced by their overseas spouses.
The ministry also implements a scheme for legal assistance to Indian women deserted by their overseas husbands. It promotes publicity-cum-awareness campaigns through audio visual advertisements on regional television networks and print media from time to time.
