Is there a form to apply for assistance under the Overseas Indian Spouses?

A form is available on the website which after completing can be forwarded either to the concerned Indian embassy/Mission/Post or to the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs.

The applications for providing legal aid received by the Indian Missions/Posts would be examined by an officer designated by the Head of the Mission/Post on case-to-case basis and approved by Head of Mission/Deputy Chief of the Mission/Post.

The scheme is a welfare measure to support women of Indian origin who have been deserted by their overseas Indian spouses fraudulently, through the mobilization of the local Indian community in the endeavor and with some financial assistance from the Government. The objective of the scheme is to provide some financial assistance for providing legal services to needy women.
