Norka Legal Cell

As part of the government`s Norka initiative, a legal cell was launched on Thursday to help expatriates in the Indian state of Kerala with employment and other issues. A free legal aid cell has been set up in Abu Dhabi to help non-resident Malayalis, a senior official told the Khaleej Times. Norka Roots, the public arm of the Department of Non-Resident Keralite Affairs (Norka), has appointed a legal adviser in Abu Dhabi to provide legal assistance to Malaysians. Harikrishnan Namboothiri K, Norka`s chief executive, said similar advisers would also be appointed in Dubai and Sharjah in the coming weeks. “As a first step, Norka Roots appointed legal advisors in Kuwait and Oman. The facility has also been expanded to Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. The cell will provide free assistance with employment issues, case submissions, compensation and clemency claims. “The cell will also provide translation services to Malayalis living abroad,” he added. The project also aims to provide legal assistance to expatriates detained for minor offences. As part of this project, a person in need or their immediate relatives or friends who have valid documents can contact the cell for legal assistance. The cell would also organize legal education programmes in cooperation with various Malaysian associations. Namboothiri said: “Those who need free legal advice will need to fill out a form available on the Norka Roots website. The applicant must provide certain mandatory information, the authenticity of which must be verified. The request will then be forwarded to the local legal counsel, who will then provide further assistance.

We need to make sure that the issue submitted falls under the Pravasi Legal Aid Cell (PLAC) programme,” Namboothiri added. The programme was established primarily to provide timely legal assistance and advice and to overcome language barriers faced by non-resident Malays in this regard. “The program will also reach out to families in need.” dhanusha@khaleejtimes.com NoRKA Roots has appointed legal advisers in all Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCCs) to extend legal assistance to expatriates serving prison sentences for minor offenses. Issues of employment, complaints, compensation and clemency were also raised before the cell. An expatriate in distress or his close relatives or friends with valid documents can contact legal aid. In addition to women living abroad, their family members can also contact the home cell by phone (0471-2770540), WhatsApp (9446180540) or email (womencell.norka @kerala.gov.in).

The cell, set up on the recommendation of young girl Loka Kerala Sabha, will act as a one-stop shop system from August to deal with the problems faced by Kerali women working or living abroad. The cell is a relief for women, especially those in the domestic worker (DSW) category, who can be harassed in the workplace. “We get an average of 12 calls a day. The main concerns are harassment in the workplace by those who fall into the DSW category, problems of adaptation and repatriation, and the dispelling of doubts about employment abroad. We intervened quickly when needed,” says Parvathy G.S., Nodal Manager of the NoRKA cell “I am pleased to have been chosen as legal advisor to PLAC (Pravasi Legal Aid Cell), which is responsible for providing services related to its work abroad and knowing the legal procedures for any problem here or with us”, said Gireesh, who added that in collaboration with the Indian Media Forum in Muscat, legal awareness campaigns are being conducted in the Malaysian community.
