On Wednesday (local time), Indian Ambassador Sanjeev Singla met with Israel’s Minister of Labour, Yoav Ben-Tzur, to discuss bilateral relations. During their conversation, the ambassador also brought up the safety and well-being of Indian workers in Israel.

The envoy received an update on the Ministry of Welfare of Indian Workers’ enforcement efforts during the meeting.

The Indian Embassy in Israel posted on X, “Ambassador met with the Israeli Minister of Labour to discuss relations, including safety and well-being of Indian workers in Israel.”

“At the meeting, Ambassador was briefed on the enforcement activities of the Ministry to ensure the rights and welfare of Indian workers in Israel,” said the statement.

The first group of individuals to travel to Israel under the government-to-government (G2G) agreement was announced last week at the press briefing by Randhir Jaiswal, the official spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA). He emphasised that the Indian government had urged the Israeli authorities to take their safety seriously.

At the Maharshi Dayanand University in Rohtak, Haryana, a recruitment drive for around 10,000 Indian construction workers in Israel started earlier this year.

Speaking at the weekly press conference on April 4, MEA spokesperson Jaiswal stated that approximately 18,000 Indian labourers were employed in Israel.

“The Indian Embassy in Israel is constantly in touch with them for their safety and it is a major concern for us,” he stated.

“The first group of individuals covered by the G2G agreement has left.”
