India Scraps Bank Guarantee Clause for Maids in Kuwait

first_imgAfter much uproar from employers in Kuwait, India has scrapped with immediate effect the $2,500 (720 Kuwaiti Dinar) bank guarantee, which was made mandatory in 2014 while recruiting Indian nationals as domestic help workers. The bank guarantee was decided upon following frequent complaints relating to sexual assault and abuse from Indian female workers employed in Kuwait.“The measure was withdrawn primarily because it was not acceptable for Kuwait and because it was proven to be ineffective,” Sunil Jain, India’s ambassador to Kuwait, said, Gulf News reported.Labor Relations between India and KuwaitIndia’s decision to mandate the bank guarantee became a hot debating point when it was implemented in 2014. Several Kuwaiti employers openly expressed their displeasure.“Kuwait has regularly informed the Indian authorities that the local domestic labor law included all guarantees for helpers and prevented problems related to late or non-payment of salaries, working hours and runaways,” a diplomatic source told Kuwaiti daily Al Rai.Jain says the new decision will help resume the annual flow of Indian housemaids to Kuwait to its former figure of 30,000 people. “Kuwaitis prefer Indian house maids because they have proven to be honest and hardworking,” he said, the Times of India reported.The latest decision by India coincides with the Kuwait visit of MJ Akbar, the Minister of State for External Affairs, that starts on Sept. 18.Guarantee was Welcomed by Indians Under the bank guarantee rule, the Indian embassy received the guarantee equivalent to $2500 from the employer before enrolling an Indian worker to their service. The mandate also gave provisions to the employer to withdraw the guarantee amount once the female employee leaves the country.In a recent interview with Al Rai, Fadel Ashkanani, the head of the Kuwaiti Union of Domestic Labour, said that the cancellation of the bank guarantee requirement will have direct impact on the fee in the domestic labor market,Recruitments of female workers in Kuwait will now be controlled by six government recruitment agencies — Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants, Non-Resident Keralites Affairs Department, Overseas Manpower Company Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh Financial Corporation, Overseas Manpower Corporation Limited, and the Telangana Overseas Manpower Company.

World of Warcraft player achieves level 90 picking herbs in starting zone

first_imgWhenever a new MMO launches there is a rush by players to reach the level cap. They do this by searching out the fastest ways to earn XP and speed through the character levels. World of Warcraft $14.48 at Amazon player Doubleagent is certainly not one of those players. He just reached the game’s level 90 cap without ever leaving the starting zone.Doubleagent chose to play the game as a Pandaren, which are a race that start out independent of the Alliance or Horde and so are effectively neutral. But that all changes when you reach level 10. A choice between the two needs to be made in order to leave the starting zone. But Doubleagent chose neither and therefore remained in the starting zone as a neutral.On paper it seems impossible to reach level 90 by doing this. No new quests are given out, killing creatures no longer generates XP, you can’t mail yourself items, and you can’t use the level 90 character upgrade Blizzard now allows you to pay for. All you can do is pick herbs and mine. So that’s what Doubleagent did.173.5 days (of play time) later and he has achieved level 90. This has confused many a player starting a new character as they don’t understand how a level 90 character got back into the starting zone. What they fail to understand is he has never left, and he intends to stay there. As soon as Blizzard upgrades the level cap again he’ll continue mining and picking herbs to get there at his incredibly slow pace.This is definitely a very expensive way of leveling up a character if you think about the subscription charge every month, but Doubleagent has produced the most unique Pandaren, and maybe even character, in World of Warcraft right now. It also doesn’t seem likely anyone will try to do this again, and even if they do, Doubleagent has a 173 day head start.last_img read more
