Recently, India and Saudi Arabia decided to set up a joint working group on the ‘Nitaqat law’ placed by the Saudi government. The ‘Nitaqat law’ relates to:
[C]Criminal Procedure Code
[D]Owning Property Rights
India has expressed its concerns to Saudi Arabia over the possibility of job losses of a large number of Indian workers in the kingdom because of a new labour law (Nitaqat). Both the nations have set up a Joint Working Group (JWG) which will deliberate on framing a Memorandum of Understanding, which is to be a comprehensive document guiding all aspects of India-Saudi labour relations.
