Punjab NRI affairs minister Tota Singh on Monday said Punjab will soon have more special courts exclusively for NRIs, as the special court established at Jalandhar has proved to be a boon for them.

Disclosing this on Monday, the minister said Punjab government was contemplating to establish more special courts for NRIs to be setup in different districts of the state. He said the state was fully committed to resolve the issues pertaining to Punjabi diaspora by taking such steps.

He said Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal was personally reviewing the status of welfare initiatives being taken for the facilitation of Punjabi diaspora.

Tota Singh informed that Punjab was also contemplating to bring amendments in land records manual and land revenue act to simplify the procedure of partition of land. He said the issue of NRIs as proclaimed offender in various offences would also be taken with the Punjab deputy CM so that needful steps could be initiated in this regard.

He said the issue of girdawaris of NRIs would also be discussed to facilitate Punjabi diaspora by issuing necessary instructions to district revenue officials.
