External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Friday said the government will make a law – Summons and Warrants Against Indian People Living Abroad -- in next session of Parliament to tackle the problem of NRI marriages which will make provision of confiscating property of NRIs who have left behind their wives.
“The law will also enable online serving of summons/warrants to Indians/NRIs living abroad through a new MEA website. It is mainly targeted at NRIs who have abandoned their wives. We will upload summons and warrants on the website and those responding to it will be declared a proclaimed offender and his properties would be seized. We will get a law to this effect passed preferably in the next session of Parliament,” Mrs Swaraj said while inaugurating day-long National Seminar on “NRI marriages and trafficking of women and children” jointly organised by Ministry of External Affairs and Maharashtra State Commission for Women.
