Need for a Mechanism to Prevent Attacks on Indians Abroad

  • Domestically, the Indian government declared that it would formulate a policy to deal with racial discrimination against Indians abroad.

  • As part of the initiative to create an institutionalized mechanism to prevent racist attacks on Indians abroad, the head of the overseas Indian affairs ministry, has been tasked to protect the Indians in Australia. Ravi has called for a report on these incidents from the Indian High Commission in Australia.

  • There was a 46% drop in Indians applying for student visas for Australia from July to 31 Oct 2009 compared to the same period in 2008, and a total drop of 26% in student visa applications to Australia from all countries (including India).
