Sub. ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ - Strategy Formulation and Implementation of a Mutual Human Rights Law and Reparation Mechanisms Between the Government of India and the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) States, mandating our elected representatives and officials to eliminate discrimination and imbalances of Overseas Indians (NRIs) working in different countries.
The petitioner is a citizen of India. For the last two decades the applicant is painstakingly working for the recognition of his individual dignity and justice as well as representing for recognition of the inherent dignity and rights of the ‘Indian diaspora’ as a whole. There have been momentous developments in relation to relations between people working in areas outside their own motherland. These include important international developments like UN General Assembly Resolutions.
A representation was submitted to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India, on January 30, 2013 by petitioner towards the formulation and implementation of a ‘Mutual Human Rights Law and Reparation Mechanisms’ between the Government of India and the Gulf (Gulf Cooperation Council - GCC) countries. This also involves the recognition and protection of the dignity of individuals. Reminders were also made in 2014 & 2015 (details given below).
The petitioner was hoping that the Government of India would be taking effective and meaningful steps in the wake of such international developments. Sad to say, no meaningful action has been taken by our Government both, the previous and the present governments in this regard so far.
The Great Republic of India has a solemn and onerous responsibility to focus its attention on the deficiencies pointed out and the challenges posed to the actual implementation of reparation mechanisms, and a clear pronouncement on the further steps to be undertaken expeditiously and implemented as a time-bound programme.
Many of the UN member states work in collaboration with the UN Human Rights Mechanisms and treaties detailed by the United Nations. A brief resume of such measures adopted in different countries are contained in the representation of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ are available here.

Reminder to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India - July 16, 2014
The petitioner was a 'Whistle blower' who reported revelations about the UAE's notorious prisons to the United Nations, taken efforts to improve the regime’s brutal prison conditions, started the first web site (1996) about UAE Human Rights etc., despite the threats to silence the whistle blower.
In conclusion, we would like to request your active support by making a contribution to formulate and implement the ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ between the Government of India and the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) States, in order to help many thousands of victims and their families across the country.
