NON RESIDENT KERALITES

NORKA extends financial assistance to legal heirs of NRKs for repatriation of dead bodies of NRKs. The amount is Rs. 50,000/- for repatriation from abroad and Rs.15,000/- within India.
The Fund is constituted for extending financial assistance, subject to conditions specified herein after, by way of grant to legal Heirs of NRKs for repatriation by air or rail, in the most economical manner/carrier available, mortal remains of the NRK who expired while abroad or in an Indian state outside Kerala. The deceased NRK must have a valid Indian passport and should have been legally residing/working in the foreign country. In the case of the NRK within India but outside Kerala he should have moved or stayed in the other states for employment / job related purposes. Such assistance from the Fund is intended to be made available only in exceptional cases of extreme financial distress in which the NRK concerned or his relative does not have any other avenue of help.
