Nityanand Rai

AS MANY as 726 Chinese nationals have been placed on “adverse list” for grant of visas by the Centre between 2019 and 2021, authorities advised Lok Sabha on Tuesday. These Chinese nationals have been blacklisted for overstaying in India with out legitimate causes and for “other illegal acts”.

In a written reply to a query, MoS Home Nityanand Rai stated that in this era as many as 81 Chinese nationals got Leave India Notice and 117 have been deported for violating visa situations and sure unlawful acts. “The government maintains the records of such foreigners (including Chinese nationals) who enter with valid travel documents. Some of such foreigners overstay beyond visa period owing to ignorance or under compelling circumstances like medical emergency or other personal reasons. In genuine cases, where overstay is unintentional or because of ignorance or under compelling circumstances, the period of overstay is regularized after charging the penalty fees and visa is extended if required,” Rai stated.

“Where overstay is found to be intentional or unjustifiable, appropriate action is taken as per the Foreigners Act 1946 including issuance of Leave India Notice to the foreigner and charging penalty/visa fee,” he added.

The Ministry of Home Affairs maintains an antagonistic record of international nationals who it doesn’t wish to enter the nation. These might be individuals who have violated visa situations and even individuals with legal antecedents.
