Telangana government plans Dubai deal for expats

About 10 lakh persons from Telangana are employed in the Gulf and other countries.

Hyderabad: The TS government will seek the support of Dubai-based companies to ensure fool-proof employment opportunities for youths from the state. Home minister T. Nayani Narasimha Reddy, accompanied by home secretary Rajiv Trivedie and others, left on Friday for Dubai where the team will meet representatives of various companies and request them to hire workers and other staff through the Telangana Overseas Manpower Company Limited.

Tomcom is an overseas recruitment agency of the TS government. “Many TS youths going to Gulf countries fall prey to middlemen and agents. They are not only cheated of their precious earnings but get caught in the web of deceit and face prosecution in some cases. We have to check such cases,” the minister said. “We will have an MoU between such companies and Tomcom so that employment seekers are not cheated by agents," he said.

Tomcom, he said, would provide travel, passport, and visa and stamping assistance and familiarise workers with overseas work conditions and culture. About 10 lakh persons from TS are employed in the Gulf and other countries. Several youths are illegally sent by agents for jobs on visit, free and private visas, and many have landed in jail in these countries.
