Cabinet approves India-France agreement

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet on Thursday approved the signing of a Social Security Agreement between India and France that will result in major benefits for Indians working in France.

Under the agreement, workers on short term contract up to five years do not have to make any social security contribution, provided they continue to make social security payment in India. These benefits shall be available even when the Indian company sends its employees to France from a third country.

Indian workers will be entitled to the export of the social security benefit if they relocate to India after the completion of their service in France. The self-employed Indians in France would also be entitled to export of social security benefit on their relocation to India.

The Cabinet also approved the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Labour and Manpower Development between India and Bahrain for protection and welfare of Indian workers in that country, including skilled and semi-skilled, and domestic helps.
