The problem of migration is not alien to many countries. Each has set up its own mechanism to deal with the said issue by adhering to international legal standards.
This blog series attempts to bring to light the deficiencies in the working of the Foreigners Tribunals established as per the Foreigners Act, 1946 and the Foreigners (Tribunal) Order, 1964.
The first post in this series discussed the structural deficiencies in the functioning of the Foreigners Tribunals and the evidentiary hiccups which have been created as a result of shifting the burden of proof on the accused. In the concluding post, the author argues as to how the working of the Foreigners Tribunals does not adhere to set international standards and concludes by suggesting reforms which shall be incorporated to protect the rights of those concerned.
