Dubai, Sept 11 : Indian ambassador in Bahrain, Balkrishna Shetty has said that New Delhi will not reverse a decision to screen Bahraini companies before they were allowed to recruit workers from India.

According to Shetty, last month around 43 firms were blacklisted after they violated labour laws in Bahrain.

"The decision was made to make sure that our people do not suffer due to the negligence or greed of some companies. We will keep up the zero-tolerance policy towards attempting to exploit Indian citizens," the Gulf News quoted Shetty as saying while speaking to media persons.
