Muscat: Around 400 stranded workers, who claimed they were not paid salaries for months, have arrived home in India.

Workers, who said they had been struggling for food and accommodation for weeks, are now united with their families with help from the Ministry of Manpower and the Indian Embassy in Muscat.

Indra Mani Pandey, India’s ambassador to Oman, hailed the efforts of the Ministry of Manpower in helping repatriate the workers.

“Oman’s Ministry of Manpower and the Indian Embassy in Oman have been working together as a team to help these Indian workers, who unfortunately have not been paid salaries for about four months. We will continue to assist them and help them find jobs in Oman.”
