What about my Rights as NRI?

I am an NRI, and I am a man. Is it so inconceivable by the Indian Government to see that NRI husbands also go through
a) Cheating by their scheming wife and her family.
b) Domestic violence by his wife
c) Desertation by his wife (who packs up her bags and leaves to India and file false 498a case on him and his family)

What is the future of India, PIO, NRI if the government is so blind to acknowledge NRI husbands and his family issues.

Woman NRIs to have cell by Dec.

Hyderabad, Jan. 8: The Union ministry of overseas Indian affairs will set up a gender cell to take up the cause of women NRI and Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) in their respective countries. Ranjana Kumari, president of Women Power Connect, a woman rights body, said here that the Centre had agreed to set up the gender cell in New Delhi by December this year. She said that the Compulsory Registration of Marriages Bill will be introduced in Parliament during 2006 to help protect the interests of Indian women, particularly those settled abroad.

Ms Kumari is in the city to deliver a talk on gender equity and social concerns of overseas Indians on beh-alf of the Union ministry of overseas Indian affairs at Pravasi Bharatiya Divas here on Monday. She told reporters on Sunday that 12.8 per cent of Indian women in the US are subjected to domestic violence. She said Indian women settled abroad face mainly three types of problems: marriage related issues, pr-oblems of emigrant Indian women in Gulf and child adoption. She demanded that State governments set up special cells to provide free legal aid to Indian women victims abroad. She said that the cells should verify documents of NRI grooms like social security number at the time of marriage to prevent cheating of women.
