Fraud online Indian Visa site warning
Report dated 08/02/2014 @ 2:05 PM

Fraud online Indian Visa site warning The Indian Embassy in the UAE has issued a warning to foreigners about falling victim to fraudsters operating a fake website, claiming to facilitate Indian visas for them.

The mission said 'some unscrupulous elements have created a website similar to the Online Visa Application website of the Government of India, and are deceiving people into paying a service charge. The scam emerged almost immediately after the Indian government decided to extend visa-on-arrival and electronic travel authorisations to citizens of 180 countries.

The bogus website with the heading Online Indian Visa Application Form, and the URL India-visa.Co/index.Php claims to have expertise in Indian tourist and other entry visas and asks users to pay a service fee of 55 pounds or $90 or an equivalent in euros/Rupees.

The embassy said some applicants had visited BLS International Centres, the visa service providers of Indian missions in the UAE, after filling the online visa application on the dud website and paying the service fee.

Measures are now being taken to pursue all options to prevent people being cheated.

Visa-on-arrival to tourists from 180 countries visiting India
Report dated 07/02/2014 @ 7:59 PM

Visa-on-arrival to tourists from 180 countries visiting India India has decided to extend the visa-on-arrival facility to tourists from 180 nations, a move that is historic and will provide a major boost to the country's tourism sector.

Visitors from countries that account for the bulk of India's tourists such as the US, UK and France that have had to go through the time-consuming process of applying in person, will be among those to benefit from the changes. Under the new scheme the tourists will be allowed to apply online and then receive the green light within five-days, before picking up their visa at the airport on arrival in India.

The government hopes to have the necessary infrastructure in place, including the country's airports, by October, in time for the beginning of the peak tourist season.

Indian scientists develop long term male contraceptive
Report dated 07/02/2014 @ 7:58 PM

Indian scientists develop long term male contraceptive Scientists at IIT Kharagpur are in the final stages of developing a male contraceptive, to be taken as an injection, that is effective for 10 years. They plan a restricted monitored launch in a few districts of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

According to Dr Sujoy Kumar Guha, professor at the School of Medicine, Science and Technology who is in charge of the project, the contraceptive called Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance (RISUG) will generate positive electrical energy when injected, that will cancel the negative charge of sperms, making them incapable of fertilisation.

The team has also created two variants of RISUG which are RISUGadv and RISUG-PH. RISUGadv has been granted a patent in Europe and is being clinically studied on human volunteers in parts of Europe.

RISUG-PH, is in the animal trial stage and indirect evidence shows it can also cure baldness, particularly crown baldness.

RISUG is expected to cost Rs.200 - 300 when it is launched.

Saudi Arabia jewellery workshops hit by lack of NRI workers
Report dated 06/02/2014 @ 4:14 PM

Saudi Arabia jewellery workshops hit by lack of NRI workers An acute shortage of skilled Indian craftsmen has forced some 400 jewellery workshops in Saudi Arabia to close. 100 others are struggling to survive. According to the Saudi Council of Chambers, Indian workers are highly desirable because of their skills.

The chairman of the gold and jewellery committee in the eastern Province says most of the now shut workshops had employed illegal workers and had wrought to benefit from the high gold prices in recent years, and though 100 workshops that employ around 5000 foreign workers, there are very few skilled workers in the jewellery industry following the labour ministry's decision in 2013, to reduce the quota, after which many Indians staying in Saudi Arabia illegally, were deported.

One expert says the nature of the gold and jewellery sector is different from other sectors, as it needs skilled professional workers, or else investors and merchants will have to depend on neighbouring countries.
