Companies in the UAE have committed to employ hundreds of Indian amnesty-seekers as part of an initiative taken by the country’s embassy in Abu Dhabi, a top diplomat told Gulf News – one of UAE’s leading English daily.
“We noticed that some of the Indian nationals (amnesty-seekers) do not want to go back home and want to look for jobs,” said Navdeep Singh Suri, Indian Ambassador to the UAE.
“We have spoken to large UAE-based Indian companies and they have come forward very generously to offer employment, if skill sets (of amnesty-seekers) match (for the available vacancies),” added Suri.
They are ready to conduct on-the-spot interviews. If we get more data about the Indians who are looking for alternative jobs, we will connect them with these companies. The prospective jobseekers among amnesty-seekers can contact the hotline numbers and [via] email (address) of the embassy arranged for the amnesty-related matters, he further stated.
