Reacting to a report about 500 Indian workers seeking government help for repatriation from Iraq, the minister said that the number is far less than what’s reported in the media.

“I have received the report from Iraq. The number is not 500 but much less. We have repatriated 52 stranded Indian workers. We have requests from 4 more. All stranded workers should approach our Consulate in Erbil,” she said.

Sounding alert, Swaraj urged the Indian workers not to overstay or else they’ll be incurring a hefty fine from Iraq.

“We request Indian workers not to overstay. The penalty is US$6000 in each case. Pl approach the Consulate for repatriation. @EI_Baghdad,” she said.
