    As per  Emigration Act, 1983, “ emigration” means that leaving of India of any Indian citizen  with the intend to take up employment in a foreign country.

    The idea behind ECR is for safety of Indian citizen due to the legal conditions of other countries and is based on various situation /conditions.
