3. Saudi Arabia

The total Indian population count in Saudi Arabia back in 2000 was more than 1,500,000, which constitutes seven percent of total Indian population. Report shows that, people who work in Saudi Arabia send $7,621 million to their home as a remittance.

Apart for that, in fresh trouble for Indians in Saudi Arabia, the authorities in Saudi Arabia have refused to accept new passports issued by Indian diplomatic missions.

Saudi Arabia authorities have declined to transfer data from old passports to the new ones submitted by Indian expatriates for updating, saying they have not received any official information on modification.

4. U.K.

It is one of the countries that is well developed and is the sixth largest economy in the world after Germany and France. U.K. offers outstanding opportunities in the field of education and occupation for the Indians. Research shows that about 66 percent of Indian girls achieved five or more general certificate of secondary education passed at the grades of A to C. This rate was better when compared to the white girls that were 55 percent.

Infact, Indian expats who stay in U.K send $3,904 million to their home yearly.

5. Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a developing country and is the eighth most populous country in the world. It is reported that there are Indians who are staying in Bangladesh and there are about 500,000 Indians presently residing.

People who are migrating to Bangladesh illegally are from West Bengal, Meghalaya, Assam, Tripura and Mizoram. According to the government authorities of the country, most of them come in search of job opportunities and mostly work in NGOs, garments and textile industries.

These Indians remit $3,716 million to their home country and the number is expected to increase in next few years.

1. 'Indians' staying in Sri Lanka are remitting to India: Who told you? Tamil speaking people of SL are integral populace of SL. they are not Indians!

2. Sri Lanks has highest GDP: Dont make us laugh! they're not in first 100.

3. 5 lacs Indians working in Bangladesh and remits 4 Bn USD to India: Have you completely lost it? that makes each Indian staying in BD remits an average 8000 USD each year. Are they all CEOs in bangladeshi organisations?

Pls dont waste common people's time unnecessarily!
