Indian Nationals who die abroad, their mortal remains to be carried back to India for free

Human First started this petition to Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and

Mortal remains of Indian Nationals who die outside India should be bought back to India by Indian carriers, free of charge. (All airlines operating from India or atleast the National Carriers.)

Currently the charge to send a dead body from the UAE to India is AED 18 per Kilo. Ticket cost to send a dead body is more than five times the regular fare. Usually if the relatives of the dead do not have funds then the Indian Community raises the required funds to send the body back to India. However, chances are that there could be a delay if necessary funds are not arranged on time.

There is a large number of Indian labor force working in the Middle East region. These people do not have any relatives in the country they work and cannot afford a regular airline ticket. God forbid if anyone die's, then the mortal remains are sent to India, subject to collection of funds from company mates or Indian Community.

This is an appeal to all Indians to come sign this petition to help families who have lost their loved one.

Together we can made a difference
