The situation has improved after an interim government took over in the African country. It has been noticed that there is growing demand for manpower in Libya in various sectors, officials in the Overseas Indian Affairs Ministry said. They said there have been repeated requests for sending required manpower from India to Libya. The manpower from other competitive markets like Bangladesh, Egypt and the Philippines are also arriving in Libya.
The decision to lift the ban partially was taken in consultation with Ministry of External Affairs and the Indian Mission in Libya, the officials said. Ravi said doctors and para-medical staff will be permitted to emigrate to Libya as the Libyan Health Ministry has approached the Indian mission in Tripoli in this regard. Complete lifting of the ban will be reviewed after considering the situation immediately after the conclusion of elections in Libya in July, the minister said.
