The Union ministry of external affairs to introduce new legislation – the Emigration Bill, 2022 – to promote “safe and legal” migration and stop illegal recruitment agents from duping people, the Centre told the Rajya Sabha on Thursday. 

The EAM said that the ministry has taken several initiatives to promote legal migration, such as the Pravasi Bharatiya Bima Yojana (PBBY) and the Indian Community Welfare Fund (ICWF).  

“We are taking a number of steps to ensure that recruiting agents are not misusing their powers… We have also liberalised the entire RA (recruiting agents) scheme so that there are no locally-based recruiting agents.”

“But I would also like to assure the members that we are planning to bring a new emigration bill which will take into account a lot of digital tracking… That will ensure that there is less breaching of laws in regard to emigration,” external affairs minister S Jaishankar said, answering a query on the scams committed by fake recruiting agents.
