Several attractive welfare schemes are in place to be offered to the beneficiaries of the Kerala Pravaasi Welfare Fund.
One of the best ways by which we can help each other is by keeping in touch. Here are the contact details of the Kerala Pravasi Welfare Board to keep us in touch.
The Malayalee diaspora is now spread to almost all continents of the world. Many are in high places. Some or not. A large group of middle and lower income Malayalees faces several difficulties during their life in foreign lands as well as when they return to their homeland. Malayalees in other parts of the country too face similar difficulties.
Kerala State came forward with a unique initiative, first of its kind in the country, to setup a welfare fund to provide welfare schemes to NRKs (abroad) and NRKs (in India). Kerala NonResident Keralites Welfare Board came in to existence under the Kerala Non-Resident Keralites’ Wlefare Act, 2008 passed in theLegislative Assembly, Government of Kerala.More than 4.3 Lakhs NRKs are members in the welfare fund. NRKs abroad but now returned to India for permanent settlement after at least two years of foreign employment, can also avail membership in this Welfare Fund. The Act envisages many welfare schemes such as pension schemes, family pension schemes, medical aid, death assistance, marriage assistance, educational assistance, etc.
