New Delhi Urges London To Go Easy On Immigration Checks
In a rather important development–which shows that India is worried about the recent UK immigration controls which are allegedly against the Indian interests–the Indian Premier has reportedly urged his UK counterpart to provide a permit system which makes possible superior and improved movement of individuals between the two involved nations.
Sometime back, in an interview, David Cameron, the UK PM, had apparently observed that all Indian students–who want to pursue studies in Britain–can do so if they manage to secure a place in a British university, and possess the necessary skills in English language. He had also disclosed that no restrictions whatsoever exist on the overall number of the students who may get employed in the nation once they are through with their studies in the country.
1-day permit arrangement
Cameron also declared a fresh 1-day permit arrangement (earlier 3-day) for students & business travelers from India which he apparently believed will inspire additional Indians to shift to Britain. The PM made it clear that the nation rolls-out red-carpet welcome to the students from India, apart from investment from this part of the world. He added that he is quite happy that certain Indian business groups–like Tata–are manufacturing Jaguars & Land Rovers even as these world-class products impress the globe no end.
However, his observations have not gone down too well with many people, and led to some debate in the British media with the reason being on the same day that he praised Indian investments, and claimed that the UK welcomes Indian students, he allegedly informed the British House of Commons that he is planning to curtail the rights of the overseas residents to make use of the British health service & benefits arrangement. He continued that he is doing the same with a view to put-off the people
of Bulgaria & Romania from shifting to Britain with a view to make the most of the existing social security system there.
Restricting right to benefits
But, in India later the British Premier observed that there are no contradictions at all between making efforts to make the UK unappealing to the overseas people–via restricting their rights to benefits–while simultaneously inspiring Indians to pursue studies in Britain before staying there, for work purposes. He reportedly proclaimed that he does not see any contradictions, adding London wants industrious persons–and this covers diligent students–to turn-up on the British soils, to make fruitful & healthy contributions to the cause of Britain.
