Since there is no available data on Indian students studying abroad, the Government of India launched a registration module for them last week so they could be reached in case of emergency.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj had tweeted on September 8 informing everyone about this new initiative.

She tweeted the link of the website:



We have no data of Indian students studying abroad. We have, therefore, started a Students Registration Module on http://www.madad.gov.in

She urged every Indian student studying abroad to register with the module. “I request all Indian students to register themselves on this module. This will be of immense help.”
“In the case of any emergency, our Embassy will be able to reach you. While abroad – Indian Embassy is your family,” she said in a series of tweets.




She also cautioned students about the fraud calls they might receive claiming to have some problems with their paperwork.

The website ‘Madad’ which means ‘help’ is a “Consular Grievances Monitoring System”. In the website, people can present their grievances about compensation, court cases, domestic help, in the event of an arrest abroad, for the transportation of mortal remains, repatriation, salary dues, etc.

The website reads that so far 13,391 grievances have been registered, out of which 8,329 have been resolved.


The Logical Indian appreciates MEA Sushma Swaraj for taking this initiative.
