Punjab Govt. to Rescue Brides Trapped in Fraudulent NRI Marriages

Lured by false promises and pressurised by prospects of easy immigration for other family members, many young girls of Punjab are suffering from fraudulent NRI ( Non Resident Indians ) marriages. It is very heartening to know that Punjab Government has taken concrete administrative steps to help the victim girls .


The victims have been divided , broadly , under two categories :-

1 ) Where the NRI groom has returned and disappeared in foreign land thereby deserting his wife( and children ) in India

2) Where the bride has been taken to a foreign country but is kept there against her wishes in semi slavery like conditions. In such cases the immigration papers like Passport have been impounded by the husband .

Punjab Government has estimated the number of such complaints to be 10000 ( But unofficial numbers are many times over ). Punjab Govt.'s Social Security & Women - Child Development Department ( Chandigarh ) and Union ( Central ) Govt.'s Ministry For NRI Affairs ( New Delhi ) have joined hands.

Punjab Government's Social Security & Women - Child Development Department's Deputy Director Rajnish Kumar Jasra informed that they are in the process of collecting relevant information through CDPO s at Block levels and Programme Officers at District levels.

Punjab Govt. would , also, seek the help of NGOs and Ministry of External Affairs. Initially conciliation would be attempted. Indian brides trapped abroad would be extended full legal and financial help. Alternate immigration -passport documents would be provided.

These steps taken by Punjab Govt. are very timely and essential. Fraudulent NRI marriages has emerged as one of the major social crisis affecting Punjab today. Many NRIs hunt for young Punjabi girls and show their relatives, mainly brothers and uncles , prospects of immigration for them. These relatives force the unlucky girl into NRI matrimony. Some times the groom is up to thrice the girl's age ; some times the groom is already married, at times more than once etc. Some of these grooms are on the look out for cheap household maids ( unavailable abroad ) or these NRIs are , simply , going in for another " holiday marriage " during their stay in India. Apart from the girl they get the use of free "dowry " . Once , their stay In India is over,they disappear abroad after giving their India wife false promises of calling her abroad once the immigration " papers "are cleared.
