The NRI grooms who come down to India to marry with selfish intentions show big dreams to the young girls only to break them. They come , select a girl, portray a false picture and expect a wedding to be arranged in those famous 14 days.

It is only a beginning., the girl leaves her parents , relatives and entire support system and embarks on a journey to an unknown land without realizing that very soon the big picture will unfold and all hell is going to break loose on her. The rise in the NRI fraudulent marriages is alarming . The problems of women married to and deserted by overseas Indian husbands reveal many causes like dowry and lack of modernization amongst rural brides to respond to the Western way of life. Most NRI men for the greed of dowry call up the girl’s parents and emotionally blackmail them to transfer money to his accounts. The helpless parents have not many options. They do realize that if they fail to meet the demands, the SIL may just file for a divorce in foreign land thus abandon the wife in the middles of no where or worst they may never see their daughter alive again !!!!

But lately there has been some respite to this misfortune, and several resolution offered by MOIA and NCW combined . One of the ways is bring about awareness, so that vulnerable brides to be do not fall prey to such conceiting NRI grooms.

Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs (MOIA) organized one day National Consultation on problems concerning marriages to overseas Indians. The purpose of the National Consultation was to take into account the perspectives of various stake holders and make use of their practical experience in finalizing a booklet for the guidance of women planning to get married to overseas Indians. The consultation was organized in five different sessions including inaugural session.Inaugural Session (10.00-10.45)The chants of Saraswati Vandana initiated the proceedings of the inaugural session. Chairperson of National Commission for Women (NCW) Dr. Girija Vyas along with Honourable Minister of MOIA Vayalar Ravi and Secretary MOIA S. Krishna Kumar formally inaugurated the Consultation by lighting the auspicious lamp.In his welcome address, Secretary, MOIA S. Krishna Kumar said that the ministry is only two years old and in its short span of functioning, it has taken note of the concern relating to marriages to overseas Indians. He talked about the progress made in this area and discussed about a booklet which is compiled by the ministry to raise awareness among the women and their families. He also highlighted the purpose of this meeting and said that this problem is multicausal and creating awareness about rights, responsibilities and obligations through education, publicity and sensitization is the main emphasis given by the ministry. Sri Kumar introduced about the contents and sessions of the consultation. Sri Kumar welcomed Chairperson, NCW Dr. Girija Vyas and Honourable Minister, MOIA, Sri Vayalar Ravi and all the delegates and media persons who were present in the consultation.

In her inaugural address Chairperson, NCW, Dr Girija Vyas congratulated the ministry for taking this important initiative. She said that the Indian Diaspora is very strong and they have links with India for many reasons, important one of which is marriage. She emphasized that women should not be treated as an object or a thing but as a human being. She said that for creating awareness among the people we should move towards the villages and gave the slogan ‘chalo gaon ki ore’. She congratulated the honourable Supreme Court for the judgment on the ‘compulsory registration of marriages’ and said that this will help in tackling the cases of the fraudulent marriage. She mentioned few of the issues related to marriages to Overseas Indians which are:

1. Cultural shock
2. Generation gap
3. Dowry
4. Harassment after marriage
5. Concealment of earlier marriage(s)
6. Lack of social security on foreign soil etc.

She suggested an extensive awareness programme to counter all these problems. While talking about the booklet published by the ministry, she suggested that some important judgments by various courts relating to the marriages should be included in this booklet which will help in the awareness generation. She also advised the ministry for keeping a database on such marriages and verifying it with different agencies with the help of Ministry of External Affairs. Our missions abroad should also help in these issues. Besides, foreign embassies and consulates in India can also be involved in this process. She emphasized the need of counseling in such cases and said that MOIA should create a counseling center where all the relevant information can be accessed.

    Very informative and a must for all those innocent girls getting married abroad with stars and dreams in their eyes!!

    I think it is a misconception that going to the west is going to be one fairy tale life. One needs to bring a broom and learn how to use before coming to USA or any other country. It will clear out some perceptions.

  3. A broom….well that will serve some purpose as well.

  4. Sumanth Says:

    Heard of dowry-immigration fraud?

    Heard of Save Indian Family?

    80% of dowry cases are false. Unscrupulous females are demanding 40lacs, 50lacs from NRIs after marriage of a few months, so that they can marry their old boy friends.

  5. Vidhya M. S Says:

    Men marry gullible girls, show them big dreams, take them to USA and call up her parens to extort money or transfer money to his account OR ELSE dire consequences will be faced. This is dowry immigration fraud and I have heard of it. This is exactly what the post is all about.

    What are dire consequneces?
    1) Girl never returns alive to India.
    2) If returns alive(vowww) , returns with a valid US divorce decree as a parting gift of her dowry seeking husband.

    (you think 30 , 40 lacs are that easy to dole out or expected or taken)

    Get real kiddo.

  6. Kiran Says:

    Dowry cases are false???

    That is expected of you. We have heard your rants all over.

    Do not even try ………

  7. Shivani Says:

    dowry cases aren’t false. men project them as false. no woman would spoil her own home.

  8. Situ Says:

    actually it is 98 % false cases to be precise. and women do spoil their own homes and the lives of their children. if you will start denying facts and live in a make believe world–sustainable happiness will be difficult.

    existence of dowry is undeniable. more so the truly ugly symptoms. but for you losers to complain over nothing is a tremendous injustice to the real women victims and frankly your own children who are now without a father figure.

  9. Ash Says:


    We are not complaining. We our achievers –what with the DV act into existence.

    You stop crying and get a life or take hike MORON.

    Our children are better without a father who has criminal charges on him. It is BEST to keep a criminal out of a child’s life.

    Now get lost or keep crying more and more.

  10. Situ Says:

    yaar–ekdum thakeli baat kar rahe ho…”get a life”, “moron”, “gay” , “na-mard” …kuch nayi baat bhi bolo…

    Achievers??!!!! By using the DV Law????!!!!! i think your ex-husband is better off facing criminal charges than you every morning.

  11. Raj Says:

    Bipolar woman brainwashed with feminist ideas comes to US with silly dreams in her head. No one dares to correct her for fear of her wrath. She then comes face to face with mundane reality of domestic life, and even though life is far better that what it was in India, gets angry and frustrated and conveniently blames the person in front of her, the poor bastard who works away like a slave for a company that exploits him while promising him and his wife green cards. The guy, who probably refused dowry on principled grounds (the very thing that she loved about him in the first place), and who is running around trying to figure out how to make her happy, is suddenly accused of being a selfish, cruel wife-beater who married her for her money, even though he makes in a year ten times what her father could ever hope to give as dowry.

    Suddenly the hapless guy is called a criminal. And if any poor children were born to this shurpankha, they “are better without a father who has criminal charges on him”. Sure, and like the millions of American kids living with their single mothers today, this unfortunate child will turn out a social misfit, full of insecurity, and with serious developmental and psychological problems for the rest of his or her life.

    Bravo to feminism!
