(MENAFN - Arab News) The number of Indian nationals inside the deportation center (Tarheel) at the end of the amnesty period on Nov. 3 was only 410. Of them, nearly 300 have got final exit visas and have left the Kingdom, said Consul General Faiz Ahmad Kidwai.
"The process for the remaining is going on," Kidwai told a meeting of volunteers and community members at the Indian Consulate in Jeddah on Tuesday.
He said that if there are any more, they should register with the consulate with their contact number. He thanked the volunteers and community members for the support that they extended during the amnesty period.
"We not only had volunteers, we had many of you helping us with the Tarheel duty every Tuesday, giving food to Indians at tarheel, working 24/7. Thank you for being there with us during this crisis," he said.
Kidwai said that right now Shumaisi Tarheel is only registering the Haj and Umra overstayers. "They give us a date on which we take them for fingerprinting. They are then supposed to purchase their ticket and go on exit," he said.
He said that all those who approach the consulate are being registered. On receiving directions from Tarheel authorities they will be called and taken to the deportation center from the consulate.
Almost 1,500 persons were registered since the beginning of registration about 10-15 days ago.
A majority of them are visa violators or huroob cases - more than 1,100. There are about 70 who hve returned from the airport, 31 are without any papers, and 10 are those who never got fingerprinted during their entry to the Kingdom. "For all these categories, we are in touch with the Tarheel authorities who have said that they are getting some clarifications and right now for all countries they are doing only the Haj and Umrah overstayers," he added.

He said that as many people as possible should participate in the12th edition of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) convention to be held in New Delhi from Jan. 7-9, 2014. It is organized by the ministry of overseas Indian affairs, along with the ministry of youth affairs and sports. "The focus is on issues of the young generation. One day (Jan. 7) is reserved as Youth Pravasi Bharatiya Divas," he said.
"It is also a good opportunity to raise issues that are very relevant to us out here, especially those related to higher education, professions, and other issues, which are there are in this part of the world," Kidwai said.
He said the convention is a platform for Indians from all over the world. Last year, there were over 2,000 participants from 42 countries, and 120 speakers.
"This year also it is likely to be of the same kind. It is a platform not only for the overseas Indians to interact among themselves but also to meet officials from the government of India, from the industry, and from the different states," he said. "There are opportunities and potentials for investment."
