Labour Welfare Memorandum of Understanding

India and Oman may sign an agreement on fair treatment for those who seek work in the sultanate:
"The Labour Welfare MoU, put forward by the Indian government for its workers in Oman would be signed in December after a top level Omani delegation visits India, said Ahamed.

"The visiting Indian minister revealed that the draft of the MoU was already handed over to Oman's Ministry of Manpower for consideration.

"Regulating and guaranteeing the rights of Indian workers abroad, including the Gulf, where a large number of Indians work, has been a long-pending issue.

"'The Omani government has positively viewed our concern to protect our Indian workers from exploitation at the workplace,' he said, adding that the Omani government have always been considerate, sympathetic and supportive."

Unfortunately, the article doesn't say what is actually in the MoU.
