Big companies willing to hire Nitaqat-hit Indians

Sun, 05 May 2013



Major Saudi companies have approached the Indian Embassy in Riyadh showing interest to recruit workers from the country affected by the Nitaqat crackdown, an embassy statement said on Saturday. The embassy urged all affected Indian workers to utilize the three-month grace period announced by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah to correct their legal status.


Dairy giant Almarai has informed the embassy of its readiness to recruit over 1,500 Indians in different positions, including managerial, technical, supervisory, and labor categories. It said interested workers may send their CVs to or call at telephone number 01- 4700005.


The company will also hold walk-in interviews for recruitment at its head office in Riyadh next week.


The embassy sought the support of volunteers from the community, not necessarily social workers, to come forward to assist those affected by Nitaqat program and all overstaying Indian workers. Indian professionals, teachers of Indian schools and others are urged to join the current campaign. Those ready to do voluntary services in any part of the country may send in their details to the embassy.

The embassy will contact the registered volunteers and advise them on the next step, the statement said. Meanwhile, the embassy said it has taken note of media reports attributed to some associations in Saudi Arabia complaining that it does not recognize social groups.


"The embassy would like to clarify that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia has formally conveyed that establishment of any association of the communities residing in the Kingdom whether inside the premises of the embassies or outside is not proper and in case there are such associations the embassy should immediately initiate steps to abolish such association," the statement said. "In view of this, the embassy does not recognize any association in Saudi Arabia and urge all Indian nationals in Saudi Arabia to respect laws of this country,"
