Indian Ambassador in UAE Navdeep Singh Suri inaugurated the second Indian Workers’ Resource Centre (IWRC) in UAE to provide support and counseling to Indians in distress. IWRC provides counseling and support to the overseas Indian Community on legal, personal and financial matters, free of cost. The first IWRC was opened in Dubai in 2010. IWRC will provide support and guidance to any member of the Indian community in any such distress situation. Members of the Indian Community can call this centre from anywhere in UAE through a toll free number 800 INDIA or 80046342 . The helpline will work 24×7 and will have multi lingual facility to help the Indian diaspora staying in UAE. The IWRC with the help of the Indian Embassy and the Consulate in Dubai will also conduct workers’ awareness Campaigns across UAE. It will also help in the verification of the genuineness of the job offers. The IWRC will receive, register and monitor grievance petitions and provide clarification to information seeking queries. Since a large number of blue collar workers live in the Northern Emirates, it was decided to open another centre at Sharjah to facilitate the Indian working community living in these areas.
