The UK Government has accepted that some Indian immigrants have been refused rights to work and live in the UK by error. This is owing to a contentious immigration rule. The clause in the law questions the character and good conduct of the immigrants.
31 applications of Indian immigrants will be assessed again said the UK Home office. This was at the end of a review of the concerns of visa applicants mainly from South Asia. These were denied settlement rights in the UK. It was owing to perceived deceit in reporting their earnings to the UK Tax Department, as quoted by the Financial Express.
12 of the 31 cases have been identified as inaccurate denials. These will be overturned and the applicants will be offered settlement rights in the UK. Applicants in the rest of the 19 cases will be required to offer extra information for reconsideration of their uses.
Caroline Nokes the UK Immigration Minister said in a statement to the Parliament that errors of this nature are regrettable. I do not seek to diminish the impact caused by the error on the concerned individuals, she added.
The UK Immigration Minister added that she will ensure that the findings of these cases will be used for informing decision making in the future. This is to ensure that similar mistakes are not repeated, added the Minister.
The campaigners have said that the individual case details cannot be disclosed openly. However, most of the applicants are Indians and other nationalities include Bangladeshi and Pakistani.
The review notes of the Home Office elaborates that the review has offered an opportunity to visit all cases and spot the level of issues. The cases have also offered a fresh viewpoint on the minority of extra finely balanced cases.
