Bilingual magazine on immigration launched

A special interest bilingual (English & Hindi) magazine on immigration – ‘Immigration Today’ – was launched on December 17, 2008. Brought out by First Immigration Publishers Pvt Ltd, this monthly magazine is published from Jalandhar.

The magazine, stated to be the first of its kind in India, is promoted by Harjap Singh Bhangal, a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England & Wales and Director of London Immigration Advice & Appeal Services Ltd, which has a branch in Jalandhar.

Priced at Rs 35, the 56-page magazine is being initially distributed in Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and Jammu and Kashmir, besides Canada, England, Europe and Dubai, and will be later expanded in India and abroad. The inaugural December 2008 issue carries a lead story on Massive Change in Britain’s Immigration System; New US Visa norms to benefit over 12,000 Indian nurses; Australia opens exam centres in India to recruit Indian doctors; Sweden to relax immigration laws to benefit low-skilled workers; European Blue Card visa gets green light, etc.

Bhangal told exchange4media that the bilingual immigration magazine in Hindi and English had been launched after the success of a bilingual Punjabi-English magazine and a live phone-in show on immigration, ‘Legal Solutions on Britain’s ethnic TV network, MATV’. This network is beamed across UK and Europe through the SKY platform. “The whole idea behind launching this magazine is to educate overseas migrants about legalised route of seeking visa and save them from the clutches of fly by night visa agents who rob gullible visa seekers of their life’s savings and also land them in jails,” said Bhangal.

Kamal Soni, Editor-in-Chief of Immigration Today, explained, “Today, when illegal overseas immigration has become a big issue for the Indian Government, our magazine will educate and empower visa seekers, especially the uneducated and semi-educated, in order to encourage legal migration.” He further said that the magazine intended to offer clear-cut advice and up-to-date rules and regulations for seeking study, marriage, business and family visit visa. “We will attempt to explain the law to the public to make them aware about how the system operates. We will run interviews with successful visa seekers besides carrying case studies of refusal cases. The magazine will feature FAQs and carry a section where visa seekers’ queries would be answered by experts,” he added.

Bhangal informed exchange4media that a new bilingual issue (in Gujarati and English) would be launched in six months’ time followed by bilingual editions in Malayalam-English and Bangla-English.
