NEW DELHI - The government has undertaken an e-governance project to make the process of emigration more transparent, Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi told parliament Wednesday.
“The ministry has undertaken an e-governance in emigration project to tranform the process of mobility of Indian workers and students going abroad into a simple, orderly and transparent process through an information technology platform,” Vayalar Ravi said during question hour in the Lok Sabha.
He said this would help establish a database of Indian students going abroad. “The project is targeted for completion by the end of 2010,” he said.
The minister said the students intending to go abroad for studies would be registered before their departure.
