Gulf Countries Facing Threat of Huge Decrease in Indian Expats
As per government agencies, more than seven million Indians currently live and work in the oil-rich Gulf nations.
There was a time when youth said goodbye to Mumbai and started to migrate to Gulf countries for better jobs. Even though they were not highly educated, the better pay packages attracted them to the Gulf.
As per records, it was in the 80s more people started entering Gulf countries for jobs. But in the mid 90s, the flow increased and a mentality was created in India especially among the people of South India that NRI status is the only solution that will help them overcome financial burden.
