Police to protect NRI properties in Punjab

The Punjab government has directed police to chart out a scheme to protect properties of NRIs in the state.

Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal has asked IG NRI Affairs Gurpreet Deo to finalise a scheme, in which police officers of respective areas will be responsible for protecting the properties of NRIs from any encroachment during their absence.

Badal was speaking at the combined meeting of empowered and organising committee for NRI Sammellan.

He said that the state government is going to organise a three-day NRI 'Sammellan' from January 3.

The purpose of organising 'Sammellan' was to have an interactive session with the Punjabi elected representatives of various countries, and to know the problems they were facing in the state, the deputy chief minister said.

The first two days of the event would be held at Chandigarh and the concluding day would be at Jalandhar.

Badal has also asked concerned departments to put up bills regarding Human Trafficking Act, Compulsory Registration of Marriages of NRIs and amendment in the Revenue Act in the upcoming Assembly session next month.
