55 recruitment cos banned to send workers to Qatar

The Nepali Embassy in Qatar has banned 55 recruitment agencies from supplying workers to Qatar for charging higher fee than the maximum amount fixed by the government and failing to ensure committed salary and works.

“We have barred the agencies from sending migrant workers and have rejected their demand letter,” said embassy’s Labour Attaché Indra Dev Pandey.

Meanwhile, the embassy has also written to the Department of Foreign Employment to take action against the agencies. The department, however, has not provided any details on whether it has initiated action against them.
