60 Chinese experts visiting desi cell co told to leave India

A mobile phone manufacturer implementing the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative recently learned that around 60 Chinese experts visiting its Daman and Silvassa plants were asked by the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) to “leave India” immediately for ostensible violations of business visas. The company approached the Bombay high court on Wednesday to question the validity of the “drastic notices”.
Nausher Kohli, the company’s counsel, appeared before a bench of Justices B P Dharmadhikari and Sarang Kotwal to seek an urgent hearing before the Christmas vacation as the Chinese nationals have been directed to leave India immediately—some have already left even though their visas are still valid. The bench took the urgency into account and posted the matter for hearing on Friday.
Kohli said they were visiting plants of Pacific Cyber Technology on business visas. “The leave India notices have been issued without providing the Chinese nationals and the petitioners with an opportunity to be heard or represented.”
