The Government has taken several steps to safeguard the interest of Indian women from fraudulent marriages with overseas Indians. The steps taken in this direction include providing legal/financial assistance to the Indian women who are deserted/divorced by their overseas spouses.
The ministry of overseas indian affairs also implements a scheme for legal assistance to Indian women deserted by their overseas husbands. Under the scheme, assistance of $3000 in developed countries and $2000 in developing countries is given through Indian Missions for filling cases in the local courts or for legal counseling through the NGOs empanelled with Indian Missions/posts.
The Ministry promotes publicity-cum-awareness campaign through audio visual advertisement on regional TV network and print media from time to time.
