NEW DELHI: Saudi Arabia new work policy targeting to create more space for local people came as the setback for thousands of Indians, especially Malayalis and Biharis employed in Saudi Arabia,in its latest development the kingdom seeks to reserve a certain percentage of jobs for indigenous people.

As per the latest Nitaqat policy - or Saudisation programme - of the kingdom, 10 percent of jobs are to be reserved for locals. The policy is aimed at expanding employment opportunities to Saudi nationals.

There are over twenty lakh(20,00000) Indians working in Saudi Arabia, including about 2 lakhs Bihari.

India's Foreign Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid had said recently that there was no need to panic and the Indian government would provide assistance to Indians who will compel to return from Saudi Arabia.

"If somebody has to go to another country, he has to satisfy the rules of that country. But if there is inconvenience caused to any Indian citizens, then whatever assistance we can give, we will provide," Khurshid assured.

Thousands of workers from 28 states of India would lose their jobs after the policy implementation in Saudi Arabia.

As per latest count, street cleaning and other sanitation works have been hit hard by the Saudisation programme as almost 100 per cent of the workers in this sector are foreigners, mostly Indians.

Labor inspectors and police officials have started conducting raids on the organizations suspected of employing illegal workers.

Employers complying with the Nitaqat norms would be rewarded with incentives while those failing would have to shut shop as the work permits of their expatriate workers would not be renewed, according to Saudi reports. The work permit is mandatory for getting the residential permit
